2019 - 2022 Strategic Plan

In 2017, Oregon Tradeswomen experienced significant transitions. With the retirement of the founding Executive Director, Connie Ashbrook, the Board of Directors shepherded new leadership to the helm. In approaching our 30th anniversary in serving mission, industry, community, and tradeswomen, Oregon Tradeswomen was intentional in taking stock of both our history, and our growth potential.

Through an intentional and collaborative process, we engaged founders, community members, industry partners, funders, tradeswomen, program graduates, staff, and board members to reflect on our roots and look forward to our future. We identified and committed to implementing bold ideas for greater impact with our work. In this process, we learned that dedication to Oregon Tradeswomen’s mission remains focused, strong, and unwavering.

Our vision to expand capacity to reach and serve more women each day to achieve economic independence is housed within our values, our programming, advocacy, and direct services. Our work helps to change lives and we invite you to join us as we think, dream, and do – bigger and bolder.
