We are pleased to announce the Emerge Oregon Class of 2020!

Like every year before this one, the number of women looking to Emerge for candidate training grew, making our decision more difficult than the last. So we have once again decided to increase the number of women we serve in our signature program.

We have offered 39 women invitations to be a member of the Class of 2020 – and we can’t wait to bring together this wonderful group of women from diverse personal and professional backgrounds. 2020 is going to be great!

Join us on Friday, January 31 at our annual “Your Candidacy Begins Today” kick-off event in Portland. Tickets are just $35 – and your investment will go directly to support this class of women!
