Portland’s Premiere Women’s Leadership Event

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.

Don’t Miss the Inaugural Rose City Women’s Summit on Friday, May 11th!

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.

    Welcome to the Rose City Women’s Summit! We are in the midst of monumental change for women and minorities and today we celebrate! Sometimes that change is societal, often times that change is internal. Both kinds of change lead to opportunities. Jane Schwartzberg, author of Naked Jane Bares All, will share her experience of embracing life in the face of a devastating medical diagnosis.

    Learn how to incorporate life-changing practices to reduce stress, prevent burnout, re-energize your life, deepen relationships, and elevate your performance at work and beyond. To many ambitious, professional women “ self-care,” is just another “to do” on an ever-growing list of tasks and responsibilities. The idea of “work-life” balance can feel even more unattainable and the phrase alone can trigger feelings of inadequacy. But the question remains: How can busy women navigate the enormous demands of daily life, and perform to their fullest with joy, and without burnout? There is a way, and it starts with changing the way you think. In this session you will learn how to: - Create time for self-care that sticks- no matter how “busy” you are - Release the guilt and shame that can accompany your new self-care habit - Rediscover what brings you lasting joy and connection - Establish healthy boundaries and say “no” with confidence - Create a work-life integration plan that refuels you physically, mentally and emotionally, every day, without struggle or strain.

    Even when we have the best intentions and hopes for our equity and inclusion efforts, our work sometimes stops short when we find conflict within ourselves. Perhaps this conflict arises when we encounter previously unexamined internalized biases. Perhaps it arises when we are called out or called in. This workshop will help attendees identify and address internalized biases as they arise so they can authentically support equity and inclusion without unintentionally deflating the effort out of their unseen resistance to inclusion.

    Tarana Burke has dedicated her life to social justice work and giving strength to those who experienced sexual trauma or harassment. Just honored as one of The Silence Breakers named TIME's 2017 Person of the Year, Burke spearheaded the Me Too movement years before it became a viral hashtag as the founder of Just Be Inc., a non-profit that helps victims. The simple yet courageous #metoo hashtag campaign has generated over 13 million Facebook posts and Tweets, emerging as a rallying cry for people everywhere who have survived sexual assault and sexual harassment. Tarana’s powerful, poignant story as creator of what is now an international movement that supports survivors will move, uplift, and inspire you. #metoo is not just an overnight hashtag sensation; Tarana has dedicated more than 25 years of her life to social justice and to laying the groundwork for a movement that was initially created to help young women of color who survived sexual abuse and assault. The movement now inspires solidarity, amplifies the voices thousands of victims of sexual abuse, and puts the focus back on survivors. A sexual assault survivor herself, Tarana is now working under the banner of The ‘me too’ Movement to assist other survivors and those who work to end sexual violence. She is also senior director of programs at Brooklyn-based Girls for Gender Equity. On stage, Tarana provides insight into the current state of affairs and outpouring of sexual assault and harassment allegations, addresses pressing issues of respect, dignity and power dynamics in schools, workplaces and politics, and shines a light on the stories of survivors and voices that continue to be marginalized.

    Organizations who are doing good work in the world often unintentionally reflect the conditions they seek to change in the external world back into their own organizational culture. A recent example is a leader of a trauma research organization who was recently accused of abusive (and traumatizing) behavior toward staff. We do the same thing as we move toward equity and inclusion - often inadvertently recreating oppressive systems within our own organizations. Being aware and creating safeguards against Mission Mirroring is critical as we become more inclusive, humane places of work.
