  • This event has passed.

It’s been six months since the wave of tech industry support for Black Lives Matter and pledges to do better. Has anything really changed?

Join Ciara Pressler, founder of Pregame, for a panel discussion on how companies and individual professionals can and should implement their values in business, including diversity & equity and beyond. What are the obstacles to implementing DE&I practices? When are values real versus just PR? What are the small things anyone can do to live their values at work?

Speakers Include:
Ciara Pressler, Moderator
Stephen Green, Creator of the Do More challenge
Marcus Carter, Social Equity Director, Cinder
Amanda Oborne, Executive Director, Oregon Entrepreneurs Network

Agenda:
5:00 p.m. – PDXWIT & Pregame introduction
5:10 p.m. – Panel + Q & A
6:00 p.m. – Event ends
