Description

Join us for February Happy Hour at Puppet!

PDXWIT is looking forward to seeing you at our February Happy Hour at Puppet! Most of us procrastinate from time to time, but maybe that is not such a bad thing. The theme of the evening is Overcoming Procrastination, and we will discuss how that last minute pressure can often help us crank out some great work. The conversation starter to keep the networking flowing will be “What helps you focus when you need to get work done?”

While the event is primarily intended for networking, we will have a short segment at 5:30 to share important announcements and showcase some individuals in our community.


  • An employee of Puppet will provide an introduction to the company and share open job opportunities

  • Rebecca Snyder will talk about how improv can help us in business

  • A local engineering leader will present “A Nerd’s Guide to Debugging Procrastination”

During the event, we’ll have more to do than free-form networking:

  • An Activity Table where people can get creative. This is a fantastic way to meet others if large groups are not your thing. If you have trouble finding it, look for Meg Aul, our Event Activities Director.

  • Table Topics to help break the ice.

  • A section for job seekers and our sponsors who are hiring, to ensure people get connected.


Agenda:

4:30 p.m. - Doors open

5:30 p.m. - Introductions, announcements + lightning speakers

6:30 p.m. - Event ends

Purpose:

PDXWIT is a community-based non-profit organization. Our purpose is to strengthen the Portland women in tech community by offering educational programs, partnerships, mentorships, resources and opportunities. We are unifying a supportive environment for current and potential women in tech, all of whom are committed to helping each other. Our goal is to bring together and empower women in tech and to encourage others to pursue tech careers. This is our step towards reducing the gender imbalance in the industry and addressing the current negative effects of that imbalance on women.

Our events are inclusive. ALL people who support our purpose are welcome.
