Bend Chamber

Event Location

62950 NE 18th St
Bend, OR 97701

March 12, 2019

Last year the Bend Chamber convened a group of involved, energized businesswomen to work together to empower and support women in business. The group did some amazing things to open up opportunities and address barriers for women entrepreneurs and professionals. Some of the biggest accomplishments were the BendX series of workshops for female early stage entrepreneurs and a task force to help solve the region’s child care crisis that has made many women (and men) make hard choices between family and career.

Come hear an update on what’s next from some amazing women who are continuing to build opportunity for women in business, women building careers and women building community.

The panel for this event includes:

Carrie Douglass

Founder of The Haven co-work space, she will share insights into the magic of a professional space that houses expertise, diversity and community.

Talena Barker

The Bend Chamber’s new Vice President of Leadership Development and entrepreneur in her own right provides a look back on BendX, its stable of female entrepreneurs and what’s next.

Teri Hockett

Vice President at Technology Association of Oregon , she will talk about promoting women in tech in Central Oregon through internships, networks and collaboration.

Erika McCalpine

An instructor in Business Administration at OSU-Cascades, she will talk about how higher ed is preparing women to excel.
