OUR MISSION

The people of Oregon care deeply about what is happening in the world – it’s in our roots! That is why we work to put Oregon’s community of changemakers on the map as a widely renowned hub inciting positive change around the globe.

OUR HISTORY

In 1996 Irene Tinker began hosting monthly mixers at her home, bringing together local folks who were changing the world through their work. Over micro brews and shared philosophy GlobalPDX was born. In 2012 Green Empowerment helped transform these informal gatherings into strategic networking events for the global development community.

In 2017 Portland State University took GlobalPDX to the next level by developing a framework for supporting local academic pursuits and organizations.

With the support of these Founding Organizations, we elevate the local work of Global Changemakers.
