President Johansen Speaks on Women Executive Panel

President Judi Johansen was one of three women participating in KPMG's Network of Women Executive Panel in May, entitled Women in the Boardroom. Johansen shared from her experiences as a director at Schnitzer Steel, IdaCorp and Cascade Bancorp. She was joined by Maria Pope, CFO, Portland General Electric, and director, Premera BlueCross, TimberWest Forest Corp and OHSU; and Martha Wyrsch, president, Vestas-Americas, and director, Westcoast Energy Inc., Spectra Energy and Union Gas Ltd. The panel was moderated by Carey Wendle, audit partner and chair of KPMG Portland's Network of Women.

The Women in the Boardroom panel session asked each panelist to share her personal stories of how she reached her respective position of leadership and the skills necessary to become an effective board member.
