Cake cutting, toasting and networking with some of Salem’s most inspiring women is just a few of the ways Saalfeld Griggs celebrated the 10th Anniversary of their annual Women in Business event on September 26th, 2019. With ten years of growth and refinement, this event, now held at Deepwood Estates, included women in business from around the Willamette Valley, the female attorneys of Saalfeld Griggs law firm and featured Dress for Success Oregon. The event originated from a need in the Salem area for a networking event focused on getting women in business together and supporting female leadership in the community.
This year, we were excited to feature the non-profit organization Dress for Success Oregon, which helps equip women with business professional attire for job interviews and offers pre-and-post employment training and guidance. Shari Dunn, the Executive Director for Dress for Success Oregon and Portland Business Journals’ “Executive of the Year”, gave an inspirational keynote on the barriers women face in entering the professional workplace. She also answered questions and spoke on how we can inspire change in professional business settings to better accommodate and advocate for women.
This event was a great success, and we are thankful for all the phenomenal women who attended and celebrated with us. https://www.salemreporter.com/posts/1383/businesswomen-celebrated-at-deepwood-estates
