Urban Nest Hosts: The Young Women Social Entrepreneurs Return!


The Young Women Social Entrepreneurs, together with the Women Founders Forum, are once again convening at Urban Nest’s N. Williams location this Thursday, 16th of January, 6 – 7:30 PM. See below for event details:

“This workshop, led by Lia Nagase, the fabulous director of Prepare Portland, will highlight and build upon our strengths in voice, tone, and body language. These elements comprise 90% of our communication, yet are rarely emphasized in traditional business training. Lia will provide us with evidence-based strategies and techniques for managing adrenaline and honing our delivery. Whether negotiating a project proposal or contract, giving a presentation, or setting boundaries with a client, these skills are invaluable for effective communication.

We look forward to exploring the concept of authenticity in our social ventures, and hope you can join us. Please RSVP by Eventbrite or email us at This event will have a sliding scale cost of $15 to $35, which we ask that bring with you.”

We all felt pretty inspired the last time YWSE were here, so we hope to see you Thursday!
