Center for Women's Leadership's 10th Annual Power Lunch

October 6, 2016

Yesterday, Nick attended the Center for Women’s Leadership’s 10th Annual Power Lunch.

The luncheon honored 18 emerging women leaders in the Pacific Northwest and gave Jan Robertson the Lifetime Achievement Award.

Nick shared a table of ten with his wife Patricia Schechter, his daughter, Maria, chief engineer of the Portland Water Bureau (PWB) Theresa Elliot, deputy director of the PWB, Gabe Solmer, Rania Ayoub, Jes Larson, Asena Lawrence, Liam Frost and Betsy Quitugua.

The Center empowers women and girls in the state of Oregon to embrace their voices, lead confidently to break glass ceilings, and to change the narrative of leadership. Students go through rigorous and inspiring educational programs, skills training, and networking opportunities with top women leaders from around the state.

Our very own Asena Lawrence is currently on the Center’s Alumnae Board Committee and completed the NEW Leadership Oregon summer conference in 2013.

Special congratulations to board chair Martha Pellegrino and all the honorees.
