Tis the season for community, sharing, gift giving… and some might say peppermint mocha. It’s been an exciting year and we want to thank you for helping us build a better tech community and for supporting each other on this journey. And with every accomplishment comes a celebration.

You’re invited to join PDXWIT and host Autodesk as we celebrate another year of changemaking! During the event, you’ll hear from our new Executive Director, and we’ll reveal the winners of our 2022 Speaker Awards as well as the 2022 Community Changemaker Award. Whether you’re attending in-person or virtual, you’ll have the opportunity to learn about how to volunteer with PDXWIT, get the scoop on our fundraising efforts, as well as a chance to connect directly with recruiters.

ASL interpretation will be provided. Please contact [email protected] with any other accessibility needs.
