The Oregon iSector
A New Oregon Sector for Community Innovation
A New Oregon Sector for Community Innovation and Problem-Solving
Imagine a new sector where leaders from the public, private and civic sectors can seize opportunities to integrate and leverage resources and take unified action on complex economic, environmental, and social challenges. Imagine a new sector that connects public, private and civic partners and makes it easier for them to work together to build a thriving Oregon.
Oregon leaders from the public, private and civic sectors need a platform and infrastructure that enables them to work easily together across sectors to initiate and conduct successful partnerships that utilize their collective capacities to meet these challenges.
The Oregon iSector is being developed to provide support and assistance to Oregon’s leaders from every sector to help them work together more effectively to create innovative solutions.
What an iSector Partnership Looks Like: The Housing Innovation Partnership
The Housing Innovation Partnership (HIP) consists of partners from all sectors – government, business, and philanthropy – committed to addressing our State’s current housing crisis through innovation, systems change, and community implementation. HIP members are focused on scaling up housing production quickly and affordably, creating safe and accessible housing to reduce the State’s dramatic housing deficit. The partners are developing specific strategies for the following areas: producing mass timber and modular housing and panels, building local governments’ planning and management capabilities, developing new financing models and incentives for middle/workforce housing, and organizing research capabilities. (See more under Partnerships).
Visualize a new sector where leaders from the public, private and civic sectors bring their resources together to take unified action on complex economic, environmental and social challenges. Imagine a new sector where synergies among the sectors lead to innovative solutions. Imagine a new sector that inspires hope in our ability to solve problems.
The Oregon iSector organization is building a platform for launching innovative partnerships to enable public, private and civic leaders at both the state and local levels to come together to address complex problems and achieve sustainable outcomes.

“Oregon faces an unprecedented housing shortage. Project Turnkey is brilliant in its design of providing a roof over the heads of those without one for a fraction of the cost of building new – in some cases probably ten times less.”
