Diversity Conference

Diversity and Inclusion Conference

"Taking Action in a World of Differences" - 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. Sessions will cover a wide range of topics, including bystander intervention, building community with immigrants and refugees, emergency planning for employees with disabilities, inclusive leadership, and equitable practices for serving Latinx Oregonians. Plan now to join us, and check back often for more details.

During June... help us with this short shuttle service survey!

For the second year, we will be offering a shuttle service for participants attending the 2019 Diversity Conference. We have put together a short survey to help us set the correct stops. Please take a few minutes to fill out the survey, whether you plan to drive or not, so we can use this information for this year and for planning parking and shuttle service in future years. We'll publish the final route and schedule on this page.

On behalf of the agency volunteers working on this service, thank you for participating!
