Oregon Bio’s Diversity in the Workplace and Bio on the Vine
07/20/2017 @ 2:00 pm - 8:00 pm$30 - $80
Whether you are in high tech, advanced manufacturing, food and beverage, outdoor gear and apparel or bioscience, diversity and inclusion are essential to driving innovation. Join us on July 20 in Hillsboro as we highlight the impact of diversity in the workplace, starting with creating opportunities for all Oregonians. Where someone grows up determines more than just their schooling or their opportunities – it also affects their health and the health of their community.
“The difference between a good zip code and a bad zip code is 25 years of life,” says Dr. David Bangsberg, the Dean for the joint OHSU-PSU School of Public Health and our keynote speaker for the event. After the keynote, join us for a panel discussion and breakout sessions, led by our panelists, highlighting the value of diversity in the workplace.
From 5:30 – 8 p.m., join us outside for a glass of Oregon Pinot Noir or a cool, crisp Chardonnay at our 12th Annual Bio on the Vine. Meet some of our favorite wineries, samples some delicious wines, and network with your bioscience and biotech colleagues at our popular summer “Bio on” event.
