    PDXWIT Presents Product Management Panel: Deliberate stakeholder communication

    Online

    Registration through Zoom https://us02web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_QSYbNRCsTzW5B4xiDrAKcQ is required to gain entry to this virtual event

    Join us for a panel discussion on Product Management. Our focus will be deliberate stakeholder communication and why it is more important now than ever before. Meaningfully communicating throughout an organization is at the core of what product managers do and is 100% crucial to the success of a team.

    However, having effective conversations to drive progress of a product can be challenging. What are ways you can establish two-way communication with internal and external stakeholders? How do you identify when your communications are failing so you can course-correct? How can you virtually recreate random hallway conversations when you are no longer working from the same physical space? How do you communicate in a matrixed organization when you work with people who are not stakeholders? We’ll cover these topics and more to find compelling communication strategies for you to use at companies of any size. Product managers, those thinking about starting a career in product management, or folks who interface with product managers will all benefit from this discussion.

    The panel discussion will feature:

    Moderator: Arezou Seifpour, Product Lead at Auxon Panelist: Ariel Aguilar, Senior Product Manager at Nike Panelist: Sadie Dickman, Product Director at Kaplan North America Panelist: Katrina Sperry, Product Manager at Gabbi

    Agenda:

    12:00 p.m. - PDXWIT and host welcome 12:05 p.m. - Panelist introductions 12:10 p.m. - Panel discussion 12:45 p.m. - Q&A 1:00 p.m. - Event ends

    Purpose: PDXWIT encourages women, non-binary and underrepresented people to join and stay in tech. Our events are inclusive. ALL people who support our purpose are welcome.

    PDXWIT Presents: How to Study for a Technical Interview

    Online

    Registration through Zoom https://us02web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_bzPRPqopRIGyPFjOc7xTfQ is required to gain entry to this event

    Interviewing for a new job can be a stressful proposition. It is hard to know what to expect or how to prepare for it. Each company evaluates its candidates differently. Luckily, some upfront investment and preparation can really go a long way in helping you distinguish yourself from the rest of the candidates. In this virtual seminar led by engineers at Amazon Web Services (AWS), we will cover some common interviewing practices for technical interviews and what you may be able to do to get ready. We plan to cover many beneficial topics:

    • Morning preparation, attire, mindset
    • Preparation for the non-technical parts
    • How to study for the coding interview
    • How to execute the coding test

    Due to the level of interaction required, attendance will be capped at 50.

    Agenda: 11:30 a.m. - Doors open 11:35 a.m. - Introductions and announcements 11:40 a.m. - Session begins 1:00 p.m. - Session ends

    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.
