  • ACT-W: Achieving Equity

    Portland State University

    ACT-W: Achieving Equity June 26-27, 2019 Portland, OR https://achievingequity.act-w.org/ Throughout our years of bringing career-advancing workshops and engaging talks to technical women and allies at our ACT-W Conferences across the country, we’ve continuously heard stories of barriers that continue to block their success. We also hear from company executives that achieving measurable Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) results can seem like an insurmountable challenge. By far, one of the most common pain points we hear is that companies and individuals want to do the right thing, but they feel stuck. That’s why we created ACT-W: Achieving Equity. This summer, we’re bringing together the brightest thinkers–and most importantly–the greatest doers in Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion to help you make change happen. ACT-W: Achieving Equity is a boutique event that provides action-oriented training and deep discussions to level up diversity initiatives and better enact real, measurable change. Achieving Equity is built for DEI professionals, managers, recruiters, community leaders, and allies–all people actively working to create change in their company or community–and takes an actionable approach to DEI.
