Join This Amazing Organization

Hola! Gracias for visiting the SHPE Oregon website, we hope you stick around for more! We are the professional chapter within the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers, serving the State of Oregon and SHPE Region 1 at-large. 

Our leadership team comprises industry, academia, and non-profit, striving to bring new possibilities and opportunities to Hispanics in each one of the 36 counties in Oregon. We are more than a diversity pipeline for Silicon Forest, we are an integral part of a new generation workforce that advances engineering and innovation.

SHPE Oregon tailors the fundamental SHPE pillars in order to address the particular needs of our local communities. Our development and outreach activities are a joint effort with student chapters in our region and we take special pride in serving as their senior advisers, from co-sponsoring a large conference such as the RLDC to sitting down for a résumé makeover session.

The path to equalizing success is a challenging one. It’s hard work that results in deep relationships that build strong communities. Our people (nuestra gente) are our most important asset.

Let’s do it together! ¡Hagámoslo juntos!
