If you had the opportunity to rethink a school campus, what would you do? St. Mary's Academy begins discussions about their expansion

It’s an interesting time in education. Models are changing. New ways of learning are being developed. And technology is impacting the learning environment as never before. So if you had the opportunity to start from scratch with a new building designed to educate high school girls—and it was smack dab in the core of Portland—what would you do? That’s the very question St. Mary’s Academy is asking. And you’re invited to join in the conversation.

It’s very much a “school as startup” vibe.

Expanding St. Mary’s Academy’s campus in downtown Portland is a once in a lifetime opportunity.  The school is calling on experts in education, business, technology and innovation to help enrich its vision for a dynamic facility to develop young women as the leaders, thinkers and creators of the future.

Join us for this half-day event and be a part of shaping the future of St. Mary’s Academy.  Attend one or all four sessions, which will focus on the future of education, the future of business, and the future of Portland.

Speakers include:

  • Tim Boyle, CEO, Columbia Sportswear
  • Andy Bryant, Chairman of the Board, Intel
  • Mark Edlen, Managing Partner, Gerding Edlen
  • Diane Fraiman, Partner, Voyager Capital
  • Renée James, President, Intel

Wait a sec. How the heck do you RSVP when the RSVPs are closed? Well, the folks at St. Mary’s were nice enough to let us in behind the velvet rope. So if you’d like to attend, please direct folks to RSVP by emailing communications@stmaryspdx.org and they’ll make sure you have a seat.
