About WISE Portland
From our much loved professional and collegiate sports teams; to our world-renown natural playground for sporting adventures in the mountains, waves, or forests; to our bustling community of active minds working for the many sports apparel, events agencies, and creative companies that call this state home- sports and events culture is strong in Oregon! WISE Portland was founded in 2019 through the support of 6 founding partners and several leading women in the region's sports and events industry to bring these minds together. We greatly expanded our board membership , committee structure, and general membership in 2020, and have a full slate of events and programs planned to grow and cultivate our community of women in sports and events in 2021.
How We Work
WISE National, governed by the National Board of Directors, leads the overarching strategy and provides resources accessible to all members, while each WISE chapter elects its own board to carry out WISE’s mission at the local level. Chapters provide programming and valuable networking opportunities in their region and work with the National Board to deliver WISE initiatives such as the WISE Within Mentor Program.
