Portland is at a pivotal moment in its urban growth. We have an opportunity — if we take urgent action — to be an example to other cities in ethically addressing gentrification and displacement. How can developers and business owners balance financial opportunity with public need to change the way we approach urban growth and development? Join us for Open for Business, a conversation with industry leaders about the future of housing, development and real estate.

Open for Business is an annual forum for Portland’s LBGTQ business community. Our mission is to serve and support LGBTQ leaders, professionals and community members. We create spaces to manifest the social, environmental and economic business solutions central to the Portland community and beyond.

This event is hosted by PSU’s The School of Business and Queer Resource Center
