CREW Portland February Program - Connecting & Empowering Women

Thursday, February 11, 2021 | 10:00 AM – 11:30 AM

CREW Portland is excited to host a unique and compelling discussion centered around connecting women and empowering them to push boundaries and break glass ceilings. We’ll highlight a collaborative project between local architecture, engineering design, and construction firms as they have teamed up with Union Gospel Mission (UGM) to create a welcoming, safe, and healing home for women and children focused on recovering from past traumas and breaking free of destructive choices through UGM’s LifeChange program.
