- The 50/50 Photo Project
We're excited to begin sharing some of the amazing photos taken by Portland's Creative Laureate, Julie Keefe, for the 50/50 Photo Project. We've been collaborating with Julie on this powerful project, which paired 25 of our accomplished alumni with an interview partner of their choosing for a conversation about the intersection of their personal and professional pathways. Interview partners included mentors, colleagues, family members, friends and former clients - all seminal players in the lives of our alumni. Click here to learn more about the project and to see some of the photos.
