Portland Team Rappels 16 Stories to Raise Awareness for Women in STEM

Filed under incredible acts of bravery: some of Glumac’s Portland staff rappelled down 16 stories of the 200 SW Market St building on August 20! As a part of the Rappel for Her Challenge, some of our brightest and bravest participated to fundraise for Girls Inc. PNW, and organization that helps young girls explore fields in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math), As an engineering consulting firm, we aim to cultivate a new generation of female leadership in the AEC industry and support a diverse and vibrant workforce. We had an incredibly successful fundraiser, surpassing our original goal of $4,000, and raising more than $7,000! Thank you so much to everyone who participated!

We also were lucky enough to capture some amazing images of the event. Check them out below!
