NWEEO, your resource for education, information and networking opportunities in the areas of equal employment opportunity, diversity and affirmative action.


NW EEO/Affirmative Action Association (NWEEO) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to providing information, education, resources and networking opportunities to employers, organizations, government agencies and individuals with regard to equal employment, diversity and affirmative action planning.

The NWEEO Board of Directors is made up of volunteers who are committed to our mission. The Board is responsible for identifying, coordinating, and hosting educational seminars throughout the year. Policy and direction of the NWEEO is determined by the association's members and is implemented by the Board members who are elected annually by our members.

NWEEO is proudly affiliated with Portland Human Resources Management Association (PHRMA) for events and workshops. Please see our Affiliations and Links page for more information.


The NWEEO was founded in 1979 as the Tri-County Affirmative Action Association. The Association's primary goal at that time was to assist employers in their efforts toward establishing, implementing and maintaining effective Affirmative Action Plans that met legal requirements.
