About the Achieving the SDGs Conference - November 17 @ PSU

In response to our members’ requests, we are hosting a half day conference at Portland State University’s Maseeh College of Engineering on Friday, November 17, focused on what it will take to achieve the SDGs.

The conference will offer opportunities to learn, network, collaborate and exhibit amongst development professionals from across Oregon.

It will consist of multiple networking opportunities (including an evening reception), workshops, panel discussions, facilitated knowledge sharing and a forum focused on fostering partnership and collaboration.

If you are unfamiliar with the SDGs, in short, the SDGs are a call to action for all countries to end all forms of poverty while protecting the planet. If you’d like more information on the individual goals or have any questions please contact us and we’ll be happy to walk you through it, or you can visit the SDG website.
