Bagels Not Bourbon with Alexis Braly James



Bagels Not Bourbon is Multnomah Whiskey Library’s newest event series.  A breakfast lecture for the MWL community, bringing some of our most remarkable and inspiring members and community leaders together.  

Join us for our first event on Friday September 29th from 8:00 – 10:00 a.m. We’ve invited Alexis Braley James, the Founder and CEO of Construct The Present, to lead a panel to discuss Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) and the ways Portland is continuing the work in different industries.
