PDXWIT Becoming Eli – My Child’s Journey from Daughter to Son
If door is locked, ring the doorbell.
PDX Women In Tech (PDXWIT) and Code Fellows present a discussion with Colleen Yeager, Corporate Controller for Jama Software, to learn about her family’s journey as her six-year-old son transitioned from a she to he. Colleen will share what this transformation has been like, as a mother, a wife, an employee, and a family unit; and how the transition awakened her son to his true self. Join us for an intimate and authentic conversation.
