Event description
Money and personal finances can be hard to discuss.

About this Event

Come break some taboos and hear our panelists discuss basic, traditional, and alternative approaches to thinking about our finances. Does everyone have a budget? What should I do with my 401k, or what if I don’t have one? What money habits are the best in your 20s/30s/40s...? How can I get a raise? Can I retire when I’m 40?

We’ll have approachable panelists from different corners of the financial world share their tips and advice on starting and growing our confidence with talking all things money, and we’ll wrap up with an audience Q&A.

Moderator: Jessica Prochniak, Solution Architect at Weidenhammer & Volunteer Coach at Innovative Changes

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.
