Help shape the future of talent in Portland A&O

We are seeking passionate Athletic & Outdoor industry experts and connectors to help build a new resource/guide to recruit, highlight, and support diverse talent.

This new resource will be focused around supporting black entrepreneurs and employees within the local Athletic & Outdoor industry. Whether its insights on how to start a job search in Portland, identifying mentors and good role models within the industry, or start a company, the objective of this new guide is to help black talent engage with a local support system, and identify a pathway to career success.

You will work with fellow industry experts to leverage your network and expertise to develop the various materials determined necessary to engage and retain diverse talent within the city.

As a contributing member of this project, you are expected to:

  • Volunteer your time to meet and discuss project outcomes and deliverables
  • Leverage your network and expertise to help strategize, design and facilitate the necessary materials
  • Bring your unique personal and professional experience to help create something innovative and effective

We are confirming candidates for this project now through January 2021. If you have any questions or concerns regarding this opportunity please contact Sucheta Bal at Prosper Portland.
