Join the Portland State University's School of Business and Women's Resource Center for our annual event: Empowering Women of Color in Business. Each year, we intentionally hold space in the community to center the experiences of women of color within the field of Business.

On March 1st, 2019 from 12:00-2:30 pm in the Karl Miller Atrium, gather with us to hear from local leaders of color within business as they share insights to visibility in the workplace, sustaining in a predominately white field and city, as well as stories of redefining failure through lessons gained along the way.

We will be hosting four presenters to provide TEDx Talks on their experience followed by a Q&A Panel with the presenters.

Speakers include:

  • Nong Poonsukwattana - Owner of Nong’s Khao Man Gai
  • Paula Hayes - President & CEO of Hue Noir Cosmetics
  • Renee Allums - Social Media/Project Manager at Nike Valiant Labs
  • Ramonita Smith - Brand Manager at Nike

Light refreshments will be provided. Registration for this event is required for entry.
