Each year, Girls Inc. of the Pacific Northwest features some of Portland’s top leaders, entrepreneurs, artists, educators, philanthropists, and other positive role models in the annual Power of the Purse event. Selecting Purse-o-nalities is typically an internal process, but for 2016, Girls Inc. of the Pacific Northwest wants your input! One spot in the 2016 lineup will be reserved for the winner of this campaign!
To get started, we need your nominations! Who are the men or women role models in our community? Who do you know that is inspiring us all – but especially girls – to be strong, smart and bold?
Before Nominating… Please Note: Girls Inc. of the Pacific Northwest aims to feature local Purse-o-nalities who are making an impact in our Oregon & SW Washington communities. Top nominees will be asked to be featured in our online voting campaign in the coming month, as well as in-person at the live event in March 2016. (Though it is not required, you may wish to seek the approval of your nominee before submitting.)
