The Culture Code: Inclusion and Diversity in the Portland Workforce

In Portland today, the job market is filled with entry level positions, positions which require little to no experience, and they are being filled by people with multicultural backgrounds, immigrants, people with disabilities, and veterans. What this means is that local companies are facing a crisis of culture. How can you possibly connect with, and embrace the differences of such a diverse work force? The answer is inclusion, and strong leadership. Troy Rulmyr, a Business Outreach Specialist in the Portland Metro area will walk you through this process, and explain how this is easier to achieve than might be believed.

Mind controlled robotic arms

Dr. Albert Chi helped develop of one of the most remarkable medical technologies of our time: the world’s first mind-controlled robotic arm. More than a prosthetic, it is a complete replacement engineering solution for the missing arm. Pushing the boundaries of body and mind, this advanced technology has the potential to help not only amputees and combat veterans, but also paraplegics, stroke victims and others whose mobility has been limited by injury or disease.
