New Relic FutureTalks PDX Bias-Aware Leadership: Tips + Tools for Managing Unconscious Bias w/ Lily Zheng
Online

Join us for our next virtual lunchtime FutureTalks session!

Unconscious Bias is typically thought of like a costly weed to be eradicated. Yet, despite our best efforts, even those of us who care most about inclusivity struggle to be "unbiased." We’re so excited to be joined by Lily Zheng, where we’ll hear about the systemic and cognitive origins of bias, the ways in which unchecked bias shapes the products we make and use, and a new framework that approaches bias not from a place of fear, but understanding.


This event will be fully virtual via BlueJeans conferencing. Use the link on this page to log in at the scheduled time!

About our Speaker:

Lily Zheng is a diversity, equity & inclusion consultant and executive coach who works with organizations around the world to create high-impact and sustainable change. With her clients, she creates novel solutions to systemic issues through a mix of management science, organizational theory, and grassroots praxis. A dedicated change-maker, speaker, and advocate, she writes for publications including the Harvard Business Review, Quartz at Work, and HR Executive, and is the coauthor of two books.

Portland Facial Recognition Ordinance Drafts
Online event

Last month, we had a great panel discussion about the use of facial recognition technologies, where we looked at the accuracy of the technology as well as how it affects various groups of people and their civil rights. Due to a number of issues surrounding the technology, several cities have banned government agencies from using facial recognition, and there's currently a similar effort at the federal level.

In August, the City of Portland will consider two bills that ban the use of facial recognition technologies within the City. One bill addresses use by public agencies, and the other addresses private use.

Hector Dominguez, the Open Data Coordinator at Smart City PDX, within Portland's Bureau of Planning and Sustainability, is one of the chief authors of the proposed bills and will join us this month to discuss what each piece of legislation covers and how the bans, if approved, will work. He'll also talk about the internal efforts to develop a privacy toolkit that includes privacy impact and risk assessments, guidelines, and a Privacy Champions Network.

Links to drafts of the legislation and the City Code amendment are available on the meeting registration page at: https://www.meetup.com/Portlands-Techno-Activism-3rd-Mondays/events/271802710/

Bring your questions and join the discussion. We hope to see you there!

Speaker bio:

Hector Dominguez is the Open Data Coordinator at the City of Portland. In 2009, Portland became the first city in the United States to adopt an Open Data Resolution to encourage the expansion of the technological community by promoting open data and partnerships between City government and the public, private and nonprofit sectors, academia, and labor.

PDXWIT Presents: Artificial Intelligence: How to Level Up or Be Automated Out
Online

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

How to pivot
Online

Feel free to submit (and upvote) questions ahead of time on Crowdcast


Running a startup is hard enough as it is, but with a worldwide pandemic, it became a lot more difficult. And it forced any number of founders and teams to consider pivoting their product and market to survive.

If you're working through similar thoughts with your startup, hearing from folks who have already turned that corner might be helpful. So we're inviting you to join us for a conversation about pivots with Alisia Ford, founder and CEO of PIE and XXcelerate alum Glory Skincare, and Jonathan Minori, founder and Chief Product Officer for PIE and Techstars alum Caravel.

We'll talk through their experiences, their recommendations for founders who are considering a pivot, and how to communicate your intentions and reasoning to your team.

And as always, we'll also spend most of the conversation answering your questions. So if you've got questions or concerns, please share them so that we can get you the information you need.

CNPDX June: Scaling Prometheus
Online

For this month's virtual CNPDX session, Jürgen Etzlstorfer of the Keptn Project (and Dynatrace) will explain how to scale your Prometheus installation:

Prometheus is considered a foundational building block when running applications on Kubernetes and has become the de-facto open-source standard for visibility and monitoring in Kubernetes environments. Your first starting points when operating Prometheus are most probably configuring scraping to pull your metrics from your services, building dashboards on top of your data with Grafana, or defining alerts for important metrics breaching thresholds in your production environment. in your production environment.

As soon as you are comfortable with Prometheus as your weapon of choice, your next challenges will be scaling and managing Prometheus for your whole fleet of applications and environments. As the journey “From Zero to Prometheus Hero” is not trivial you will find obstacles on the way. In this session we are highlighting the most common challenges we have seen and provide guidance on how to overcome them. Finally, we are discussing a solution to get you there more quickly to build automated, future-proof observability with Prometheus showing Keptn as one possible implementation.

How to create frameworks and strategies for equity within startups
Online

Join PIE for a conversation with PIE alum Quincy Brown about how to create frameworks and strategies for equity within startups.

"As startups we have a chance to lead with equity as we develop our business plans, marketing, customer outreach, and the like," said Quincy. "From my perspective, equity includes including women, BIPOC, youth, elderly, and everyone undeserved by policies and programming."

Quincy is a young, native transportation planner from Portland. He began is transportation planning career volunteering at TriMet working directly with the HR department where he served as a volunteer translator and helped recruit Latinx employees.

Following his degree from Claremont McKenna College, Quincy engaged in post bac work at Berkeley in Sustainability and the Built Environment and City and Regional Planning. He won best research in Human Rights from the Mgrublian Center for Rights and was Claremont McKenna's first Mellon Mays undergraduate fellow, a fellowship for minority students interested in becoming PhD professors.

His research has consistently focused on creating sustainable and equitable planning and programming that support and involve people of color, people with disabilities, and low income residents. In all pursuits, Quincy is passionate about bringing equitable and sustainable practices to everyone regardless age, race, gender, sexuality, or belief.

Panel Discussion on Facial Recognition Use in Portland
Online

Facial recognition technologies are being implemented around the world. While some uses of facial recognition, like unlocking your phone, may be convenient, others allow your facial information to be collected, used, and shared, without your knowledge or consent. Both governments and companies are now using this technology, often with little to no oversight or rules in place. In addition to transparency issues, facial recognition software programs have varying degrees of accuracy and have been shown to be less reliable when analyzing people of color, women, and children.

Because of these issues, some cities, including San Francisco, Oakland, and Somerville, MA, have banned government agencies from using facial recognition. Portland city officials are also considering a facial recognition ban and are looking to go a step further and address use by private entities as well.

There are many details to consider when adopting technologies like facial recognition, which can be used for surveillance. What are the costs and benefits? Who will be the target of the surveillance? Will it make us safer? What are we giving up in exchange for that safety? And should the technology be adopted at all?

On June 15th, join us for a combined event, with local privacy group PDX Privacy, where we'll ask our knowledgeable panelists the answers to these questions. We'll explore the risks of facial recognition technology, the ways it affects various groups of people, and how we can preserve our privacy and protect our communities.

We'll have a Q&A period via the chat box, but you can also send questions in advance to [email protected], and we'll work to get them into the discussion.

Moderator: Chris Bushick (PDX Privacy)

Panelists:

  • Sarah Hamid - CAIR Oregon

  • Commissioner Jo Ann Hardesty - Portland City Council

  • Nathan "nash" Sheard - Electronic Frontier Foundation

Pitch Club is a collaborative workshop for any entrepreneur with the desire to create and deliver a perfect pitch. Pitch Club will assist participants in sharpening their ability to communicate with investors including gaining insight on the types of questions potential investor will ask and the best way to answer them.

Why do we pitch?

To be successful, entrepreneurs need the ability to sell their product. Pitch Club will provide insight into perfecting how to talk about your business.

Who facilitates Pitch Club?

TiE has an extensive network of Charter Members. Many of our Charter Members have run successful businesses in the past and many are current Angel Investors. We curate curriculum and leadership from the pool of talent within our network because of a shared desire to mentor entrepreneurs.

This month, Tom Kingsley, Successful Entrepreneur, TiE Charter Member, Mentor and Investor will lead the event.

WHAT OUR ATTENDEES SAY

“The NW Power BI Symposium is a fantastic opportunity for business professionals from all industries to learn how Power BI can unleash data-driven insights within their organizations. This event has been invaluable to me as I continue to learn best practices and more sophisticated methods for building high-impact analytics at KEEN Footwear.”

Robert Gillin, Senior Planning Analyst, KEEN, Inc.

“We had analysts across three different teams attend the symposium. Making those connections has really helped break down silos within our own organization and helped build cross-functional teams. We are seeing a great cultural shift and are already looking forward to the next symposium in June.”

Ben Vega, AVP, Data and Reporting Analyst, Frontline Strategy, Umpqua Bank

“Attendees can expect to learn something new and valuable that they will be able to implement right away regardless of their experience with Power BI. The Symposium is a fantastic opportunity to learn about specialized topics in less technical areas, such as Power BI adoption strategies and report design considerations, from local and international experts.”

Stephen Gessling, Business Intelligence Developer, NWEA

OWASP PDX - Yes, You Too Can Break Crypto: Exploiting Common Crypto Mistakes
Zoom Online - See link at Meetup page

Abstract Cryptography is tricky. Sure, everybody knows not to roll out their own crypto, but is it enough? Are the standard algorithms, libraries, and utilities always used the right way? This is of course a rhetorical question! Humans keep making mistakes that other humans can exploit, and Murphy’s law continues to prove true: “If there is a wrong way to do something, then someone will do it.” In this talk, not only will we discuss what can go wrong, but also how attackers could take advantage of that. Insufficient entropy? Static initialization vector? Key reuse in stream cipher? Lack of ciphertext integrity? We’ve heard these terms and may be familiar with them in theory, but let’s see actual examples of these and other crypto mistakes and corresponding exploits, and understand how they could lead to real life problems. Are you not on an offensive team and not interested in exploitation? Then this talk is for you too! Come and learn how to avoid common crypto mistakes in your code!

Bio Alexei began his career as a software developer. A decade later, he realized that breaking code was way more fun than writing code, and decided to switch direction. He is now a full-time application security professional, with several years of assisting various development teams in delivering secure code, as well as security consulting. He holds OSCP and CISSP, and currently works as a lead product security engineer for Salesforce.

Pitch Club Portland
Centrl Office Pearl

Pitch Club is a collaborative workshop for any entrepreneur with the desire to create and deliver a perfect pitch. Pitch Club will assist participants in sharpening their ability to communicate with investors including gaining insight on the types of questions potential investor will ask and the best way to answer them.

Why do we pitch?

To be successful, entrepreneurs need the ability to sell their product. Pitch Club will provide insight into perfecting how to talk about your business.

Who facilitates Pitch Club?

TiE has an extensive network of Charter Members. Many of our Charter Members have run successful businesses in the past and many are current Angel Investors. We curate curriculum and leadership from the pool of talent within our network because of a shared desire to mentor entrepreneurs.

This month, Tom Kingsley, Successful Entrepreneur, TiE Charter Member, Mentor and Investor will lead the event.

What to expect?

Each attendee who intends to pitch should prepare a five minute pitch presentation. (This can include a power point projection that will be presented from your computer.) Directly after pitching a 10 minute Q&A will take place with questions to the imaginary investors about the product and pitch.

Those who attend pitch club will walk away with a better understanding of what investors look for in a pitch and how to answer the questions possible investor will ask. In addition, each presenter will receive a digital copy of their pitch and feedback from their peers and TiE Charter Members.

PIE founder stories: McKenna Dempsey, Kamber
Online

Join PIE for a conversation with McKenna Dempsey, cofounder and CEO of current PIE company Kamber.

At least 20 million teenagers are living with a mental health disorder in the United States and 70% of them aren’t getting the treatment they need. Kamber’s mission is to change that by providing easily accessible tools and resources that empower teens to prioritize their mental health and make space for self acceptance.

By creating a mobile app that provides exercises for difficult moments, coping techniques and education, teens will be equipped with the tools they need to begin managing their mental health and find ways to ground themselves.

For more, see McKenna's presentation from PIE Demo Day 2020 (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N_vrmHAI4MQ).

PIE founder stories: Julia Niiro, MilkRun
Online

Join us for a conversation with PIE alum and Techstars alum Julia Niiro, founder of MilkRun.

See Julia's story about MilkRun at PIE Demo Day 2019 (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YbaIO9XltRg), her views on small local farms from TEDxPortland 2019, and the explosive growth MilkRun has seen due to the pandemic shared during Techstars Anywhere Demo Day 2020.

MilkRun works with farmers and producers in Oregon & Southern Washington to break down the access barriers to local food. The national average for how far food travels to get from the farm to your house is 1,500 miles. That’s wild! We’ve cut down our average to 35 miles and have designed a system that leapfrogs the industrialized food system. Less travel = less pollution. More access to food = fresher, healthier foods!

It’s not just about ditching the grocery store lines, it’s about keeping money in the community and supporting local producers. For farmers, we’re able to provide 6-7x what they’d make from a normal grocery store. It should be as easy (if not easier) to buy from local farmers as it is to order a cab or book a stay in someone’s house, right?

90% of the small farms in America right now are at risk of extinction. If mega-industrialized farming becomes our only option for food, we’ll have no more farmer’s markets, no more CSAs, no more farmers who are stewards to the land. Without radical new systems like MilkRun, the only options for food will be from huge corporations pushing profit over people, and we just don’t want to live in that kind of a world. We can do this, together!
