Oregon Economic Forum: "Reaching for Economic Equity and Inclusion in the Second Gilded Age"

Wednesday, October 17, 2018 at 7:00am to 11:00am

Portland Marriott, Downtown Waterfron 1401 SW Naito Parkway, Portland OR

Although the economy remains in the midst of what will likely be a historically long economic expansion, the challenges of “poverty amidst plenty” remain. In this event we will explore different facets of equity and inclusion issues spanning from geographic to racial to gender divides and the actions that may help alleviate the economic impacts that stem from those divides.
