When Workplace Stress Becomes a Mental Health Struggle

Many of us live and/or work on the west side of the Portland metro area and may not have a convenient professional community nearby. Thanks to support from PDXWIT and Salesforce, on October 16 we will get together in Hillsboro to talk about mental health.

In addition to our usual networking format, a representative from Salesforce will tell us about the company and share available opportunities. Kirsten Anderson, Channel Marketing Manager at Bigleaf Networks, will talk about normalizing mental health conversations in the workplace, preventing burnout, and warning signs that you could be on a slippery slope.

Event FAQ

Q: Will there be gender neutral restrooms?

A: We do not have gender neutral specific restrooms, however, we have modified the restrooms in our main floor for that.

Q: Is the space ADA accessible?

A: Yes.

Q: Will there be food and drink at this event?

A: Yes.

Q: What is the parking situation?

A: We have ample onsite parking and it is free. If you come in off Cornelius Pass Road, upon entering the parking lot continue straight for the closest parking to our building, which is clearly marked.

Q: Is there any special information that might help me find the entrance?

A: There are three entrances downstairs, however, only one will be used for entry to the site, which is our main entrance facing the parking lot directly across from the building. All guests will be required to sign a NDS and take a visitors badge while on site.

Q: Is there secured bike parking?

A: We have some space for bikes inside the building, and racks outside, but riders will need to bring locks for those racks.

Q: Should I consider using public transportation?

A: Either works. Driving is pretty common for the office, however, the Orenco Max Station walk is about a 12 minute (leisurely) walk to our office.

Q: Can I bring my dog?

A: No, we ask that you leave your furry friend home. Please note there may be office pets present at this event.
