Join the Technology Association of Oregon (TAO) and our partner, Multnomah County, as we wrap-up our first a community driven, collaborative design sprint. Teams will be recognized and will "pitch back" to our community partner leaders who will rank solutions based on ability to implement and scale.

Breaking the Code’s goal was to leverage assets from the public sector (data, staff, technology platforms, public infrastructure, small business incubation), and the technology industry (technology solutions, expertise, professionals, funding) to provide solutions that serve the community.

We look forward to celebrating the end of National Digital Inclusion Week, our partners, our participants and our community.

 

 

KEYNOTE

 

Joshua Fields | Director of Sales SW Washington & Oregon | AT&T

If you know Josh (Joshua, J.Fields, DJ Music by J Fields) you know that authentic and transparent growth are some of his greatest strengths. He has always been thrust into leadership, whether in church, in the halls of Franklin High School, the University of Washington and or Howard University, or currently in Year 10 of service and leadership at AT&T.

What makes Josh unique is that he is the rare person with whom what you see is what you get. Honesty. Integrity. Humor. Humility. Confidence. And maybe most importantly a transparancy that transcends even his limitless charisma.

Whether evolving and pushing himself as a husband and father. Whether being the best son and Brother he can be. Whether be in service and honor to his friends. Or whether selecting the perfect soundtrack to wedded bliss, Joshua’s standards for himself exude and leak into everything he does and makes wherever he goes better for having him.

Yet his greatest trait within his authenticity is his courage — his courage to be himself and the courage that he gives others. Whether helping inspire a large corporation to utter the words “Black Lives Matter” or making his “team” feel like Family, or whether just this month leading a multi-billion-dollar corporation in conversations about the power of diversity, making it examine itself the same way he examines himself, people are changed because Josh is not afraid to change in front of and with them.

His consistent pursuit to better himself makes everything and everyone around him better. His courage to look in the mirror not only reflects his greatness, but shines and helps reflect the greatness of others. That among many other reasons is why J.Fields is Black history, today.
