Building the Future

We recognize the lack of diversity in the workplace and the resulting challenges it brings to employers. Research shows that it is equally difficult to attract and retain professionals of color.

What could be done to change that?

Since 2018, Simple X has worked tirelessly to connect Black professionals, create opportunities, and cultivate the relationship between Black professionals and the corporate sector. We've hosted premier networking events featuring dynamic speakers such as Lakecia Gunter, VP and General Manager of IoT at Microsoft, Stephen Green, Chief Operating Officer of A Kids Book About, and Pia Wilson-Body, President of the Intel Foundation.

Our events are made possible by sponsors like Wieden + Kennedy, the City of Portland, and Daimler. Each event averages between 100 and 200 attendees. 45% of our audience, ranging between ages 25 and 55, work in tech or for tech-enabled companies.

The Simple X Mixer is a premier networking event for Black professionals highlighting Black leaders and entrepreneurs.

The Simple X Job Board is an online list of open positions catered to attract Black professionals.

The Simple X Agency is a platform that offers professional development workshops, and diversity, equity & inclusion services.
