Join OBI for our annual celebration of Oregon’s thriving manufacturing sector and the critical role these businesses play in supporting our economy and way of life. On Oct. 1, organizations and businesses across the country will mark the occasion with events in coordination with our partners at the National Association of Manufacturers.
Join OBI and Partners in Diversity for a practical discussion on how employers can improve their workforce diversity. Over the course of two webinars, the team at Partners in Diversity will not only answer your questions, but will dive deep into two new research projects that provide guidance on how to recruit and retain workers of color in Oregon.
Each year, the event is attended by hundreds of business leaders who are joined by community leaders and elected officials, ranging from members of Congress to community college board members, from throughout the state. Our 2021 dinner will mark the 20th anniversary of this cherished Oregon tradition, where we will be reflecting on the challenges and successes of the past year, and what the future holds for Oregon businesses.
The Summit will include field & industry tours, general session speakers, and a series of discussion panels focused on regional economic updates, federal and state legislative updates, program and industry updates, and more.
