C-TRAN Success
on board into positions that we
probably wouldn't have looked at
historically, " Merry said.
Thanks to these practices, within
a few years, coupled with changes
in the executive team, C-TRAN
is seeing " dramatic changes " of its
organizational make up.
" We started getting a much
more dynamic group of people, "
Merry added.
As C-TRAN's organizational
makeup has evolved over the
years, so has its conversation
about diversity, equity and inclusion
(DEI). As conversations about
DEI have naturally grown, a group
of managers created a DEI team
made up of employee volunteers.
Like the Green Team, this group
has grown organically to become
the PEACE Team, which stands
for promoting equity, acceptance,
compassion and education. Members
include those from all levels,
" ...[DEI]
is something that
for many years
wasn't a piece of
who we are, and
I think now it is a
very defining piece
of who C-TRAN is
as an agency. "

management and non-management,
and those who've stepped
up and taken on leadership roles
may not necessarily have director
or manager in their title, but
they're seen as leaders throughout
the agency.
" [The DEI Team] is very honest
and open and very forward about
the things that they want to see as
not only members of the agency
but [as] members of the community, "
Donaghy said.
Part of this is being intentional
with community engagement.
C-TRAN is involved in Pride
celebrations, Juneteenth events
and many members of the executive
team are members of other
community organizations like
the Portland Hispanic Chamber
of Commerce and the NAACP.
" It's really exciting because
[DEI] is something that for many
years wasn't a piece of who we are,

and I think now it is a very defining
piece of who C-TRAN is as an
agency, " Merry said.
Generating Success
Much of C-TRAN's success has
been made possible by employees
of all levels feeling empowered to
not only make the agency a better
place, but the community a better
place. As the agency marks its 40th
anniversary this year, it's been less
about celebrating 40 years than it
is about celebrating the employees
and the investments they've made
in the community.
" We give people the opportunity
to lead...They take it and they
run with it and it makes things so
amazing when you get to come to
work in the morning. And we are
who we are because of our employees
and our community and
that's really the baseline for us, "
Donaghy concluded.
