At a place like The School of Business at PSU, it allows us to stay current and agile with our stakeholders’ ever changing needs and redefine how student development can serve communities in a more meaningful way.
The School of Business has been developing strong partnerships in Portland's business community for over 50 years, and when the coronavirus pandemic started to impact local companies, alums of The Portland MBA formed a pro bono consulting firm called The Portland Business Support Project (PBSP).
Here are seven Black and POC-owned coffee shops to support now — order takeout, buy beans or pick up gift cards to use later. Soon we will be able to come together over hot cups of coffee to share ideas and take action to redefine business and transform lives.
The celebration and support of diversity, equity and inclusion at Portland State and The School of Business drew me to this role, and that culture continues to be one of the best parts of working in this community. As a queer woman, it was important for me to find affinity and support the voices of my community at The School of Business.
