Diversity in the Construction Trades Summit

  • East County Family Services Center 11826 Northeast Glisan Street Portland, OR, 97220 United States (map)

Goal: Jobs on construction projects are a critical component to providing increased economic opportunities to all members of our community. In creating those opportunities and focusing on workforce, we provide an equitable chance for diverse workers to find work on public projects, provide a vehicle for workers to increase their skills and grow their leadership which ultimately leads to the future creation of state certified MWESB contractors.

By offering this Summit, we create an opportunity to bring key stakeholders together, share efforts towards workforce diversity to date, provide tools for implementing strong workforce programs, and work toward a regional approach to workforce equity.

The Diversity in the Construction Trades Summit is hosted by Oregon Tradeswomen and Constructing Hope.
