Description

There are big things happening in Vancouver’s technology industry, and PDXWIT is eager to expand its presence into the area. Please join us for the next PDXWIT Vancouver Mixer, hosted by Home Depot QuoteCenter.


While the event will be primarily focused on networking, guest speaker Jennifer Baker, President, Columbia River Economic Development Council (CREDC), will share an inside look at her professional journey, from Washington D.C. to Ethiopia and Vanuatu and, most recently, to Clark County, where she leads the CREDC team working with private and public sector partners to accelerate the economic vitality of the region. Join Jennifer as she discusses the ambitious vision adopted in the Clark County Comprehensive Economic Development Plan, the growth opportunity the tech sector presents and the vital role women in tech play as CREDC works to expand the footprint of the Software and Computers and Electronic sectors in Clark County.

Camila Morrison, PDXWIT’s Vancouver Events Lead will talk about the origin of PDXWIT Vancouver Women in Tech, where the group is headed and how folks can get involved!


A representative of QuoteCenter will also share information about the company, including any opportunities that are available. We will also have a job seekers section featuring local Vancouver companies sharing available employment opportunities!


So please join us for our next Vancouver Mixer at QuoteCenter. Hope to see you there!

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.
