    Inclusive leaders can prevent toxic work environments.
    When you run an amazing company that is making the world a better place, one of the last things you want to hear is that an employee feels harassed or discriminated against. But statistics show that harassment and discrimination occur at very high rates, and good companies are not immune. Many business owners with scaling companies worry they might lose good employees or even face lawsuits because of discrimination, but they’re not ready to hire a full Human Resources Department. 

    In The Inclusive Leader’s Guide to Healthy Workplace Culture, Meredith Holley provides everything a business owner needs to stop and prevent toxic work environments, including:

    • Tips to actively diagnose whether a work environment is toxic or healthy
    • How to make sure you find out right away if a serious problem exists – without spending all of your time listening to complaints
    • Why investigations alone are not enough to respond to complaints at work
    • How to effectively respond to employee issues (without losing good employees) 
    • Why understanding and navigating the power dynamics of the work environment are key skills for every employee to learn


    If workplace cultural problems feel like a test you didn't know you signed up for, The Inclusive Leader’s Guide to Healthy Workplace Culture is a cheat sheet for acing that test and creating cultural health in your company.

    It’s available at www.HealthyWorkplacrCulture.com and at Amazon here:

    About the presenter:

    Meredith Holley is a lawyer, life coach, and author of the bestselling book Career Defense 101: How to Stop Sexual Harassment Without Quitting Your Job. She helps women stop sexual harassment and clean up toxic work environments without losing their jobs. One way she does that is by helping companies with harassment and discrimination prevention.

    Dr. Lisa Skari, MHCC and Dr. Jessica Howard, PCC will discuss the state of community colleges in East Portland.


    Jessica Howard is a campus president at Portland Community College. She holds a Ph.D. from New York University and, from Rice University, a Master and two Bachelor degrees. Her doctoral work was interdisciplinary and based in the humanities.


    Prior to joining PCC in 2012, Dr. Howard enjoyed a long tenure at San Antonio College in San Antonio, Texas. There she worked as an adjunct instructor, a full-time assistant and associate professor, an online course developer and a department chair, Interim Executive Vice President (over student and academic affairs), and ultimately as the Vice President for Academic Affairs. Dr. Howard’s administrative experience also includes being Director of Fine Arts for a K-12 college preparatory school.


    While at PCC, Dr. Howard has presided over the college’s workforce and community development operations. She is now leading the development of the college’s newest comprehensive campus, located in Southeast Portland. The Southeast Campus is PCC’s most diverse, housing lower-division transfer and career/technical programs, as well as the college’s alternative high school programs and its signature “aspirations to college” program, Future Connect.


    Dr. Howard grew up primarily in San Antonio, but was born in Bombay, India and lived as a child in Bangkok, Thailand. She also spent a year abroad at King’s College in London during her college years. She considers her international experiences to be formative, as well as her lifelong efforts in the arts.

    Liz Feldman with Business Outreach Program (BOP)

    Liz Feldman, MBA

    Liz Feldman has been working as a business advisor serving typically and historically underserved business owners with the Business Outreach Program since 2012. Her experience with people and systems has led her to continually work to help others better use their resources. She recently facilitated the Interise Streetwise MBA curriculum in Portland to growth stage businesses. Whether working as a volunteer with families and farmers in Paraguay in the Peace Corps, as a wilderness guide with struggling teens, or as a business advisor with emerging, women and minority run businesses, she believes that helping people hone their understanding and skills while building their own capacity gives them the chance to realize their dreams.  

    Liz co-founded the nonprofit Wild Forests and Fauna with a small team of scientists and business professionals. The team seeks solutions and projects to protect and restore wild and threatened forest regions by working with local communities. Liz has spent a good deal of her efforts supporting skill building and relationships in the Peruvian Amazon. She also loves to dance and walk her dog.

    Our Garden is the crown jewel of public park spaces in Outer Southeast Portland. Wander more than a mile of trails and paths, discovering the Garden's special places.  Find the Stone Cabin and the blue dinosaur.  Like a library of plants, the various species in our collection display their qualities during different seasons.

    The lush green landscape is also home to a variety of fauna.  Deer, rabbits, squirrels are not uncommon.  Occasional beaver and ermine may be seen.  Hummingbirds and hawks, dragonflies and butterflies make their home here. Johnson Creek is home to fish and other aquatic creatures. 

    Dedicated volunteers make it possible for the Garden to be open to the public six days a week. They provide information at the Manor House and opportunities to browse our gift shop.  More than a park, Leach offers a unique experience of the botanical, artistic, historic and natural landscapes.
