Lane Powell Shareholder Parna A. Mehrbani was recently named a 2015 Orchid Award Winner by the Portland Business Journal, which will honor her during their “Women of Influence” awards ceremony on April 16.

This award was designed to honor the region’s most influential business women who have made a difference in their communities, blazed a trail for the rest of us and are leaving a mark on the Pacific Northwest community.  Nominations for the award were judged on three criteria: professional accomplishments, community leadership, and awards and milestones.  Mehrbani was nominated based on her exemplary work ethic, as well as her dedication and involvement in several community organizations, including the Oregon Minority Law Association’s IMAGE program, which educates, trains and supports minority attorneys, and the Rock ‘N’ Roll Camp for Girls, a nonprofit that builds girls’ self-esteem through music.  Additionally, Parna has participated in leadership programs for the Oregon State Bar, Business for Culture and the Arts, and the Portland Business Alliance.
