"Portland is my home — I was born here. I love this city and want to participate in its growth."
I am inspired by the opportunity to challenge the status quo and help to build a more inclusive and equitable city.
The mission of this event is to serve and support LGBTQ leaders, professionals and community members through a forum on the social, environmental and economic business solutions central to the Portland community and beyond.
Listening to speakers at various conferences around the area talk about how previously marginalized groups are now finding new success in unconventional areas within tech inspires me to want to do more with my own career while building others. Ideas often start from conversations, and unlocking shifting industry trends to create new opportunities is changing the world for the better.
