Celebrating Women in Leadership Fundraiser
The Oregon Commission for Women (OCFW) invites you to join us for our first fundraiser for women’s leadership development.   The event will be held on Thursday, April 26, 5 to 7 pm, with NW Natural as presenting sponsor, in their downtown Portland roof garden/event space with hors d’oeuvres and drinks.

Celebrating Women in Leadership: Bridging the Generations is an evening of networking, discussion and dialogue among supporters of women’s leadership as we explore women’s voices with our communities and learn more about their individual paths and insights to Oregon leadership.  We will join with state and business leaders, students, the Governor's office, legislators and special guests to raise awareness of women’s achievements and challenges, and raise funds for the leadership development work of the OCFW, including scholarships for emerging leadership training and other opportunities that grow women’s leadership statewide. The OCFW is a Governor and Legislature appointed body tasked with advising state policy makers, including the Governor and legislators, on policy issues and matters of importance to women, public policy research and legislative advocacy.

The keynote speaker is Liliana Luna, a 26-year-old, a 2017 Woman of Achievement Emerging Leader awardee, PCC Multicultural Coordinator, PSU Graduate Student and a DACA recipient, and the face of women’s leadership.  Her remarks will share what leadership means to her.
A panel discussion of women leaders will follow and build a dialog on intersecting identities and leadership journeys across generations.   The panelists include:
  • Lux Preciado-Solis, Lincoln High School Senior, Center for Women’s Leadership Teen Council
  • Erika Nebel, Policy & Special Programs Advisor, City of Portland; New Leadership Oregon Alumna
  • Linda Castillo, New Portlanders Program Coordinator, City of Portland; Vice-Chair, Commission on Hispanic Affairs
