Women Who Code Portland - Working Remote and Creating Community



Panel and Discussion on Working Remote and Creating Community

As the COVID-19 situation evolves, many of our offices have issued voluntary, recommended, or mandatory work-from-home guidance. While some of us already work from home and some of us are new to it, we are all adjusting to new situations with partners, kids, pets and housemates. We are also readjusting to a new way of socialization with virtual coffees and happy hours.

Our panel will discuss their tactics for working at home or remotely.We will talk about how we have adjusted schedules and environments to accommodate kids and other folks at home with us. Then we will discuss ideas on how to create community and stay connected while practicing social distancing. We will then open it up for Q&A and discussion. We also want to hear from you, since this is a new situation for all of us and none of us have all the answers.
