Join This Amazing Organization

Thank you for visiting the SHPE Oregon online hub. We are a professional chapter within the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers primarily serving the State and SHPE Region I at large.

Our leadership team comprises industry, academia, and non-profit, and we strive to bring new 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.

As many other chapters in the Nation, we tailor the fundamental SHPE pillars in order to address the particular needs of our local communities. Many of 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 advisors, 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, but we are up to it.
