Cindy Solomon
It’s never been more important for women leaders to make a positive
and proactive impact inside of their organizations, their teams and
their careers. But none of us can climb the mountain without first
learning to use the ropes! Join us for an inspiring evening with
keynote speaker Cindy Solomon, a leadership expert, author and
speaker — plus some of Oregon’s very own startup company founders
— as they talk about “Being Courageous.”

Christy Goldsby
Growing up in Portland, OR in a family of cooks, bakers, farmers, and gardeners, the kitchen was always a place of celebration, creativity, nourishment, and joy. I started Honey Mama’s as a way to share these celebrated family traditions, my love of nature, and my passion for healthy living. Determined to make an impact through conscious eating, I prioritize using only the highest quality, nutrient-rich ingredients and delivering a comfort food experience!

Mollie Plocher
After spending the first half of my career at Nike, earning my marketing wings so to speak, 2Hemispheres was born with the vision that we would serve all masters. Our goal was to leverage both sides of our brains and address both the needs of retailers and brands with equity. Creating a uniquely blended service product that honored both the creative and analytical aspects of the business. Growing up an athlete and working at NIKE gave me the tools and confidence to make the leap to starting a small business with little to no training, combined with just enough guts and dash of crazy we pulled the trigger.

Heidi Johnson Bixby
A serial entrepreneur, Heidi Johnson Bixby is a long-standing leader in the Portland/Vancouver business community. Her business ventures include The Difference clothing stores, real estate development, advisory services, and more. Undeterred by the idea of being “too busy,” Heidi also serves on numerous boards for nonprofits and is deeply involved in H-RoC, an organization that supports women seeking political and community leadership roles in Southwest Washington. When she isn’t shaping and contributing to our local business community, Heidi is an avid world traveler and photographer
