Contact Christine@PDXCareerCoach.com for sponsorship opportunities.
Presenters will speak about their organizations in lighting rounds of 3 minutes each, with raffle prizes after every presentation. Creative women — especially those in apparel and tech — we invite you to come hear stories from women who launched design organizations, and how these groups are shaping the creative climate in Portland. You will leave feeling supported, energized, and inspired to pursue your design path.
