Don’t Miss the Inaugural Rose City Women’s Summit on Friday, May 11th!
The Rose City Women’s Summit is the Junior League of Portland’s leadership and professional development conference for women with a focus on diversity and inclusion.
The Summit is an all day seminar where women can invest in themselves through experiences with nationally and regionally recognized speakers through keynote addresses and breakout sessions catering to various development tracks. The time is NOW for women’s empowerment and the Summit is the Junior League of Portland’s response to this call to action from our community.
In addition, the Summit is a fundraiser for the Junior League of Portland’s 1910 Campaign, where all proceeds from the Summit will go directly back into the Portland community. The Junior League of Portland developed the 1910 Campaign as a special appeal campaign that will culminate in 2020, JLP’s 110th year, by giving $110,000 to New Avenues for Youth to celebrate this milestone. New Avenues for Youth is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the prevention and intervention of youth homelessness. After 2020, JLP plans to renew their 1910 Campaign and elect a new community partner to receive the next gift.
Since its founding in 1910, the Junior League of Portland has served the needs of the community while educating and developing volunteer leaders in the Portland area— over one hundred years dedicated to irreplaceable community programs and committed voluntarism. The Junior League has been the driving force behind the initiatives that make our community a healthier, more vital place to live. Junior League members, reﬂecting a wide range of backgrounds, interests, and professional pursuits, work together to identify unmet needs, forge effective coalitions, and work for change.
