Diversity Conference

Diversity and Inclusion Conference

"Taking Positive Action in a World of Difference" - that's the theme for the 2019 Diversity and Inclusion conference, set for Sept. 11 and 12 at the Salem Convention Center. This conference brings together motivated employees from over 35 state agencies to offer a full day of professional development to build cultural intelligence in our increasingly diverse world.

Lunch, shuttles and more

Once again this year, we'll have several food trucks offering convenient, delicious local foods for lunch. Or, you'll have plenty of time to visit a local restaurant, or there's space to sit and enjoy your brown bag lunch.

We'll also be running shuttles again from several popular pick-up and drop-off points. See the map for locations and times, and view this short video to learn more about what's new and what you can expect. See you there!
