Jeremy Long - Founder of Daybreak Racing

Hear Oregon-born and bred trail running race director Jeremy Long talk about growing up on the Oregon coast and his early connection to the landscape of his youth (more to the land than sea though), his tendency toward running and cross country over typical team sports and the love of the activity he shared with his brothers, how he needed a white noise machine to help him get to sleep when he moved inland for college (without the sound of waves crashing...), his journey into public health and the desire to help others, the sense of belonging and community he felt from running events and culture and how that led him to create Daybreak Racing, his eventual transition to going full time at Daybreak and leaving public health behind, his family's support in taking the leap and how his kids have taken to the race-director life, what he sees as the future of trail running and racing, and much more!

Sam Purvis - Co-founder of Good Coffee

Hear passionate entrepreneur and hospitality fanatic Sam Purvis talk about growing up in Oregon (first Portland, then Sisters) and the process of moving around as a youth as one of five brothers, his early outdoor escapades during high school motor biking in the foothills outside Sisters, how his faith lead him to seek empathy for those living on the streets and how that urge set him on a path of traveling the country with a friend and living with homeless populations they met along the way, the lasting impact that trip had on his life and what came next upon his return to Oregon, his meandering career path after that and the evolution toward being interested in coffee and cafe culture, why he eventually came to care less about the coffee and more about the people and the experience and how that tied into the creation of Good Coffee (with his brother Nick!), the growth of that brand and what it's become today, why he wants people to know that they are valuable and worthy, the future...

Skylor Powell - Founder & Impact Producer at The Thread US

Hanif Fazal - Founder & CEO of Center for Equity and Inclusion (CEI)

Hear tireless social change activist and diversity, equity, and inclusion champion Hanif Fazal talk about his father's journey from Africa to India to the United States--where he met Hanif's mother in Chicago--and how that blend of cultures (Indian and Mexican) made his upbringing really stand out from the nearly all-white landscapes and institutions he found himself surrounded by after his family relocated to Tigard, Oregon, some of his earliest memories of that move from Chicago to the Portland area at age 3 and what it was like trying to settle into structures that had zero similarities to his own experiences at home, the range of emotions he felt as a child under those circumstances and how that lead him to act out, how some seriously rough years in his teens in Portland further opened his eyes and made him consider what people could achieve and accomplish if the world around them was actually designed to give them a proper chance at success, how he finally pulled out of that da...

Emma Sharer - Campus Manager at the Redd

Food hub expert and outdoor adventurer Emma Sharer talks about growing up in the SF Bay Area, being send to a Spanish immersion school at a young age as a result of her parent's desire to expose her to diverse environments from the get go, her first job at age 13 building "broccoli towers" at the local farmer's market and how that further sparked her interest in food and food systems, privilege and the unique education she received at Colorado College, the food project in Mexico she helped create during those collegiate years and how her Spanish speaking continues to be a valuable asset in her work to this day, outdoor activities like skiing and trail running and why those are essential to her well-being, the vision she later developed of her dream job and how people at Portland's EcoTrust somehow had the very same vision, what the word "redd" actually means and why it's located on Salmon St., and much more!
