AGC Member Discount for PBJ How Oregon Works

Thursday, May 13
10–11:00 am

Portland Business Journal is bringing forth the annual How Oregon Works event. How Oregon Works (“HOW”) is a recurring editorial series that explores workforce challenges and opportunities facing Oregon’s most important industries – Manufacturing, Tech, Agriculture & Natural Resources, CRE & Construction, Health Care, Energy, and Higher Education.

This year, the HOW series content has evaluated the pandemic and its multi-layered effects on Oregon’s workforces, how businesses of all shapes and sizes have adapted to the new environment, and the still-developing aftermath. The content will focus on:

  • Essential Industries: Industries that were deemed essential in the beginning of the pandemic are facing critical talent shortages — find out what’s needed to keep these economic drivers moving forward post-pandemic.
  • Equity in the Workplace: There is a critical need to diversify the workforce in most industries. What systems and policies are employers implementing to ensure diversity, equity and inclusion for their companies?
  • Now Hiring: What industries are looking to hire a year into the pandemic? How can the Portland region fill the talent pipeline?
  • Recruiting & Retention: Is Portland’s current reputation affecting recruiting efforts? What are best practices when it comes to retaining talent and creating lasting careers for job seekers.

The event panelists are:

  • Peggy Miller, CEO of PacStar
  • Becky Hultberg, CEO of Oregon Association Hospitals & Health Systems
  • Andrew Colas, President of Colas Construction
