Thanks to PDXWIT and Vernier’s support, we can get together to talk tech and other work topics. The event will be primarily networking focused, but we will have a couple guest speakers:

A representative from Vernier will share information about the company, including any opportunities that are available.

Guest speaker, Amanda Brooks, Customer Account Manager at Nursegrid, will talk about “Setting boundaries in your personal and professional life to create balance.”

We will also have a job seekers section where attendees can learn about the various employment opportunities available right now.

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.
