Description

Registration through Eventbrite [https://www.eventbrite.com/e/pdx-women-in-tech-pdxwit-may-happy-hour-tickets-44921186478] is required to gain entry to this event

Join us for happy hour at Expensify on May 22nd.

There is always so much going on at work and in our personal lives. We are curious — how do you do it? This month we want to hear from you about balancing the stress of constant growth. We will spark the conversation with our prompt “How do you balance stress with self care?”

While the event is primarily intended for networking, we will have a short segment at 5:30 to share important announcements and showcase three women in our community.

Introduction to Expensify, including what they do and what job opportunities are available.

Deborah Ivanoff, Life Coach, will share how to prevent emotional programming from hijacking your life.

Judy Ossello, Senior Transition Manager at Nike, will talk about managing the stress of constant change, whether at work or home.

During the event, we’ll have more to do than free-form networking:

  • An Activity Table where people can get creative. This is a fantastic way to meet others if large groups are not your thing. If you have trouble finding it, look for Meg Aul, our Event Activities Director.

  • Table Topics to help break the ice.

  • A section for job seekers and our sponsors who are hiring, to ensure people get connected.

Agenda:

4:30 p.m. - Doors open/Networking

5:30 p.m. - Introductions, Announcements + Lightning Speakers

6:30 p.m. - Event 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.
