Event description

Description

Join us for a fireside chat with Congresswoman Suzanne Bonamici, who has represented the First Congressional District of Oregon since 2012. Suzanne is the founder and co-chair of the bipartisan Congressional STEAM Caucus, which aims to encourage innovation and creative thinking by integrating arts and design with Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math education. She also serves as a member of the Committee on Science, Space, and Technology, and she is the top Democratic member on the Subcommittee on the Environment.

We will use this as an opportunity to learn how our top National issues — Civil Rights, Women's Health, Gender Equity, and Health Care — are playing out on the national stage. The Congresswoman has an hour to answer any questions we have. We will be drawing tickets to ensure that as many people as possible have a chance to ask questions.

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.


Trans and non-binary people are always welcome at our events.
