Fresh Consulting (formerly Uncorked Studios) is a product design and development studio based in Portland, OR. We exist to transform thoughts into things. We do this by digging deep to understand why a thing should exist. We insist on learning who the thing is for and why they will care. Lastly, we believe that how a thing should be built is easily explained once you know its greater purpose. We find satisfaction in knowing that our work makes a difference for someone in the world. We find purpose in making the impossibility of a thing more possible. We find joy in making things because it makes the world a far more interesting place.

Over the past two years, Fresh Consulting (formerly Uncorked Studios) has been investing internally to address their own diversity and inclusion needs. Above and beyond the official Diversity Pledge activities, the team has instituted monthly diversity and inclusion discussions. They have committed to sending their staff members to outside seminars and forums on these topics; they have established an internal diversity and inclusion Slack channel; and, for the past year, they have undergone a review and redrafting of their HR standards.
The HR standard review, with the goal of weeding out and addressing unconsciously biased language in their recruitment letters, job descriptions, and other materials that affect personnel, required a year of planning, drafting, and oversight.
This company has made it their goal to reflect diversity of experience, perspective and point-of-view not only within their team but also to the clientele they serve. The company is working to craft a more inclusive, effective and collaborative culture.
Portland tech companies have joined the Diversity & Inclusion Pledge since its initial launch in 2015.
