PDXWIT Presents: LGBTQ+ in Tech: Authentic Representation in the Gaming Industry
virtual

Registration through Zoom is required to gain entry to this virtual event

The wise video game director of “Tell Me Why,” Florent Guillaume said, “...authentic representation was crucial, in part, because video games can put you in the shoes of characters that you don't necessarily relate to.” Gaming is a big industry. With representation from all over the world, it takes more than just code to represent the authenticity of a character within a game. It also means that the people creating it are well represented in order to provide as accurate a representation of the cultures and behaviors enacted within a game.

Join PDXWIT for this panel discussion to learn more about how game acculturation is changing the gaming industry and what it takes to create characters and stories that you and I can relate to in a virtual environment.

Facilitated by Crystal Sincoff and Hazel Valdez, you will hear from Kate Edwards, Executive Director of Global Game Jam, as well as game developers including Lauren Lizardo and Zach Deocadiz as they discuss what’s happening in the gaming industry today.

You will also hear from our host and find out if they have open positions.

Agenda: 12:00 p.m. - Event opens/networking 12:05 p.m. - Introductions 12:10 p.m. - Panel discussion begins 12:50 p.m. - Q&A 1:00 p.m. - Event ends

Purpose: PDXWIT is building a better tech industry by creating access, dismantling inequities and fueling belonging. Our events are inclusive. ALL people who support our purpose are welcome.

Peer Pressure: A Peer Coaching Event
Virtual Zoom Webinar

Looking to meet new professional contacts but want to skip the small talk? Interested in getting help in facing work challenges head on? Ready to learn the best way to have positive and supportive professional relationships to become a better leader?

Welcome to the power of peer coaching.

Peer coaching is awesome! It's a mutually supportive, powerful form of learning and development where peers work together to reflect, share ideas, teach one another, or solve problems in the workplace through deep inquiry, accountability, direct feedback, and encouragement.

Peer coaching also helps build emotional intelligence, which is indispensable when stepping into leadership positions. The best leaders take the time to learn and practice skills like active listening, empathy, open communication and effective feedback, which can all be learned through practicing successful peer coaching relationships.

Join StartOut for a 1-hour peer coaching event where attendees will:

Learn basic peer coaching strategies like active listening, asking open questions and giving/getting effective feedback Get matched with 3 new people and meet 1:1 together for 15 minute breakout sessions Get to know each other by sharing your story with conversation prompts, practice your new peer coaching strategies, and create meaningful connections Have the opportunity to stay in touch and continue supporting your new contacts throughout the year

About the host:

Hi! I'm Tracy (they/she), a StartOut programming board member. I design strategic programs for client companies who focus on community. In the past I've built experiences for Airbnb, Girl Scouts, Ketel One, the Alliance for Downtown New York, the Brooklyn Museum and more.

I'm also an independent creator, building events and programs like Lady Boss (curated talks and speed mentoring for womxn and non-binary people), Radical Sabbatical (a creative retreat to take a break and make some progress) and Queer Future (a community for LGBTQIA+ folx to talk about work).

I've also participated in many group coaching, peer-led or cohort-based learning experiences over the years, so I know a lot about collaboration, active listening, asking honest questions, and giving/receiving feedback.

Driving Impact with Diversity-Based Opportunity Funds
Zoom Webinar

We know that investors often look for patterns, referrals and pedigree to make the investment process efficient, safely fitting into established norms.

The unintended consequence is that brilliant founders without the right connections are often passed over. This expresses itself in many ways but often we see that LGBTQIA+, Black, Latinx, and Native American founders are largely left out of the VC ecosystem.

Today, companies are creating specific, application based, Opportunity Funds - their goals being inviting more underrepresented founders into the global ecosystem. This looks like a diverse Investment Committee that includes members from both inside and outside of the investment institution, the goal being to review at early stage investments alongside growth investments.

The result? Underestimated founders have access to direct capital.

Join StartOut Founders, Morrison & Foerster, and Bank of America/Merrill Lynch as we discuss how investors set up these kinds of funds, what current programs look like, how to maintain these funds, and how to bring investors and entrepreneurs into this ecosystem.
