Tech, economic insiders talk Portland's talent, nuanced future
The Portland metro is no stranger to topping "livability" lists thanks to its quality of life and the growing job market, particularly in technology and other “knowledge” jobs. The common theme from the panelists: Companies are moving or opening offices where employees want to live. And people are choosing where to live before figuring out a career.

Intel’s diversity efforts are somewhat paying off
It became clear in last year’s mid-year diversity report that Intel had a leaky bucket, meaning that even though it had increased the number of underrepresented minorities it was bringing in, its overall minority representation was on the decline. Based on Intel’s latest diversity report, it seems the company is moving in the right direction when it comes to retention of diverse employees. TechCrunch
