Please mark your calendars for Thursday, July 12, 2012, for an ELGL brown-bag session with former Oregon Governor and current Metro Councilor Barbara Roberts.
Governor Roberts will share some of her insights and valuable lessons learned about leadership through four decades of public service. Previous to her service as Oregon’s first woman governor, she was elected to two terms as Oregon Secretary of State, two terms in the Oregon House of Representatives (which included a term as Majority Leader), and as a director for the Parkrose School District and Mt. Hood Community College. Following her term as Governor, she taught public leadership courses in the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University and in the Hatfield School of Government at Portland State University.
Currently, in addition to her service on the Metro Council, she is a co-chair of Century of Action: Oregon Women Vote, 1912–2012, and her autobiography, Up the Capitol Steps, was recently published by OSU Press.
Governor Roberts looks forward to sharing her ideas, insights and perspectives with ELGL members. This event will take place from noon to 1 p.m. at Metro Regional Center, located at 600 NE Grand Avenue in Portland.
I’m the co-founder and executive director of ELGL. I love my job. Other things I love: local government, my family, my dog Michael Jordan, sandwiches, naps, books, and skee-ball.
