Mission Statement

The Contingent empowers leaders and mobilizes community for the common good.


Emerging Leaders focuses on diversifying the workforce in the Greater Portland area by providing pathways to leadership for underrepresented communities. Our mission is to empower diverse talent to excel as professionals through opportunity and a supportive community.

The Emerging Leaders Internship (ELI) matches recent graduates and college students of color with paid internships at top companies throughout the Portland Metro area.

The Emerging Leaders Mentoring (ELM) program supports underrepresented groups and those with barriers to employment who seek careers in the technology and healthcare industries by matching them with established professionals to engage in a formal mentoring relationship.
