Event description


Join us for happy hour at Zapproved on August 20th.

Calling all introverts!

We all know the tech industry is full of networking events, but networking can be daunting, especially for introverts. The theme of our August Happy Hour is “Calling All Introverts!” To get people talking about this, our conversation prompt for the event will be “How does being an introvert or extrovert affect networking for you?”

While the event is primarily intended for networking, we will have a short segment at 5:30 p.m. to share important announcements and showcase three members of our community.

  • A representative from our host company Zapproved will share what they do and what job opportunities are available at the company

  • Tula Sabes, Lab Support Technician at Intel, will talk about Inclusion and Being a Young Introvert

  • Emma Holland, Program Manager at Thinkful, will talk about Networking for Introverts

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 those hiring, to ensure people get connected.


4:30 p.m. - Doors open/Networking

5:30 p.m. - Introductions, Announcements + Lightning Speakers

6:30 p.m. - Event ends

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.
