April 6-13:Top Things to SEE/DO/FEEL

Design Week is one of our favorite weeks in Portland’s jam-packed calendar year. Why? Because it features many of the things we love about living in our city: Local makers, high-quality design, women-led projects, and beauty in its many forms.

Check out a few of the many, many incredible projects we’re excited to see during Design Week, April 6-13, 2019.

Finance, Fashion and Feminism

A picture is worth a 1,000 words but it doesn’t tell the whole story. Take a trip down memory lane as Charlene Quaresma showcases women’s fashion throughout the decades while juxtaposing those beautiful images with the ugly reality of what women could and couldn’t do financially during that time period. Did you know that women couldn’t get a credit card in their own name until 1974?

It’s important to know the past in order to take action in your present. Only then, can the future truly be female. Mixer and Networking before and after the talk. Free financial plans and/or consulting for those interested.
