This past Tuesday evening, our own Hatch Lab was host to a very special reunion of amazing Portland women: this year’s winners (& special guests) of the Portland Business Journal’s Women of Influence Orchid Awards.

This invite-only reception featured intense, inspired conversations about what these women can now do together and move forward, led by Orchid Award Winner and Hatch’s own director Amy Pearl, Family Forward Oregon’s Andrea Paluso, clips from powerful documentary Miss Representation, and generous food & drink contributions, including wines from Sokol Blosser (founder Alison Sokol Blosser is a fellow 2015 Award Winner), a savory spread courtesy of Experience Lab, an assortment of whisky from Catalyst Law, Missionary Chocolates’ salted vanilla caramels, and two house cocktails that were quite the smash hits.

See a full list of the 2015 Women of Influence Orchid Winners on the PBJ events listing.
