Organizer Partners in Diversity

Organizer of Partners in Diversity CEO Forum

Partners in Diversity (PiD) works with employers to address critical needs for achieving and empowering a workforce that reflects the rapidly changing demographics of the Pacific Northwest. We accomplish these goals through educational programs, a career center and resources for CEOs, human resources professionals and diversity influencers. PiD also helps recently relocated professionals of color connect with the multicultural community through major networking events such as our signature Say Hey! event, civic engagement opportunities, social media and personal relationships. PiD conducts regular scientific research that inform the ways in which Oregon and southwest Washington employers can successfully diversify and retain multicultural talent. The Workforce Diversity Project, completed in 2017, and the Diversity Retention Project, completed in 2020, reveal key findings to the why employers struggle with recruitment and retention, and provides solutions to better recruiting and retention strategies. Partners in Diversity is a membership-based organization that operates as an affiliate of the Portland Business Alliance Charitable Institute, a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization.
