DJC Launches Women of Vision Magazine

Every year, the Daily Journal of Commerce (DJC) honors exemplary Women of Vision who, through their leadership, hard work, and perseverance, are shaping our built environment with their leadership, mentoring efforts, community involvement and the promotion of industry diversity.

The DJC Honors a new group of such women each year at the “Women of Vision Awards Luncheon.  While this is an important annual event, Daily Journal of Commerce Editor, Stephanie Basalyga, thought that these influential women deserved more than a single event:

“We at the Daily Journal of Commerce decided it was time to create Women of Vision magazine. Named after the awards program the DJC holds each fall, this new quarterly publication will tell the stories of women who are building our city, our state and our region.”

The DJC’s new publication will share stories about women of the past who shaped the world to be as how we know it, as well as the women of the present who are helping direct the future of the construction industry.

The inaugural edition of Women of Vision features women such as Nina Allen,  a construction inspector for the Portland International Airport, and Lisa Patterson, recipient of the Mark O. Hatfield Architectural Award.
