Case Study

Q&A with CrowdStreet's Courtney Moss

Courtney Moss, Office Manager, provides insights into CrowdStreet’s progress as a TechTown Pledge company and her advice for other companies interested in joining the pledge

Why is being a TechTown Diversity Pledge company important to Autodesk?

Diverse viewpoints let us look at the world in a new light, see possibilities that we haven’t considered. We see diversity and inclusion as a key driver in a supportive workplace; one where all employees experience equal opportunities to succeed; where all are accepted and supported based on their skills, talents and unique abilities. We want that same experience for our customers and our student users.

How is your company expecting to benefit from joining the Diversity Pledge?

Joining TechTown demonstrates our commitment to diversity and inclusion on a local level. Autodesk is a global company, but we strive to act locally and be a leader in both diversity and inclusion. It’s our goal to create opportunities for as many people as possible to imagine, design and create a better world – and a better Portland.
