The Division of Equity and Inclusion is co-sponsoring a county-wide town hall event coming up in April. The Women’s Foundation will visit with communities across Oregon and will take everything they learn from their town halls to include it in a major report on the status of women and girls in Oregon. They would like to hear from as many women as possible from all different backgrounds to find out the issues that matter most to us here.
