Event description

Description

Many of us live and/or work on the westside but may not have a professional community convenient to the area. Thanks to PDXWIT’s and Navex Global support, we can get together to talk tech and other work topics. The event will be primarily networking focused, but we will also have the opportunity to hear from our host and a member of the PDXWIT community who has expertise to share.

Regardless of company or industry, sometimes we need to have tough conversations at work. We are excited to have guest speaker Jesselle Hedman, HR specialist at Vacasa, share tools and tricks for navigating difficult conversations.

We hope to see you there!

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.
