About Roux Portland:
Roux was launched in October 2019 in Portland, OR to celebrate and highlight women and underrepresented voices in the food & beverage industry. The first year was a special weekend and truly, the start of something good. Successfully welcoming 500+ attendees and 33 participants from all over the country, it was  an inspiring weekend packed with powerful discussions, beautiful food, drink and hand-on experiences. 2020 + 2021 were much different years, but Roux still brought the local Portland community brunch delivery, soup takeaway, cocktail kits, Adult Tea and a virtual poster AND puzzle show. Now we’re back in July and October 2023, more inspired than ever and ready to celebrate you all in a big way. Learn more at
