Event description

Description

Design is everywhere. From the clothes you’re wearing to the smartphone you’re holding, everything is designed. Design is crucial to just about everything—it renders the latest technology accessible to the masses, makes our favorite apps and products a pleasure to use, and determines which brands we return to over and over again. To put it simply, design matters. Join us in a fun-filled, hands-on evening experiencing the power of human-centered design. Leave with some fun memories, an insight or two and a greater appreciation for Human-Centered Design.

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.
