Event description

Description

Many of us live and/or work on the west side of the Portland metro area but may not have a convenient professional community nearby. Thanks to support from PDXWIT and Salesforce, on December 11 we will get together to talk tech and other work topics in Hillsboro.

In addition to our usual networking format, a representative from Salesforce will tell us about the company and share available opportunities. Charlotte Chipperfield, the founder and CEO of Chipperfield Media, will share the top do’s and “don’ts” of social media and how to leverage social for building either a business or personal brand.

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.
