What advice do you have for our community during this time of crisis?
“I think that this time of crisis is a real opportunity for the GlobalPDX community. I think that the GlobalPDX community is well placed to be a part of the conversation around what role does development play as the world changes.”
Taylor: "In terms of global change, connectivity is monumental. People are motivating each other to actively speak up and step outside of their comfort zones with deeper conviction that ever before. It's impactful and meaningful work and is truly inspiring to witness and even more so to participate in a community that has come together the way Portland has."
