placeholder for on-line events



Zoom registration is required for this event [https://us02web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_avOaH7zkTdigOgLFuGck5g]

We live in a time and place of unparalleled opportunities at the cost of unprecedented uncertainty. The catalyst is rapid acceleration and acceptance of disruptions as a way of life where no industry or individual is immune.

The challenge is future-readiness and a record number of CEOs are being fired after failing to navigate disruption, as reported by CBInsights. The number is the largest wave of departures since the 2007-2008 financial crisis.

Today we see the convergence of exponential technologies that are doubling and recombining like IoT, Robotics, AI, Synthetic Biology, Immersive and Augmented Tech, Big Data, and others. Advances are moving faster than ever before and with each step.

In particular, AI is an exponential technology that touches every industry and every aspect of business and life. It is a foundational technology that is garnering the highest investment funding across fewer rounds and hitting a new high of $26.6 billion in 2019 alone. What does this mean of our human abilities to keep up?

Attendees will learn ways to avoid being automated out and become more future-ready and resilient. Topics covered include:

An expert definition and impact of exponential technologies

The agony of maintaining a competitive edge

Workforce Profiles in Four Possible Future Worlds

A case for the no-collar workforce skills that should be enhanced

Top 5 strategies to navigate your future and remain competitive

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.
