Deconstructing Women in Technology: What is the data really telling us?
Quick Left

Stop by Quick Left to see CEO of Consulting Ingrid Alongi give her wildly popular, data-driven talk - Deconstructing Women in Technology: What is the Data Really Telling Us? Ingrid's is passionate about creating an environment for our developers that harbors creativity and collaboration, and believe incorporating women on the team is a key element to what makes our company work so seamlessly.

In her opinion, there are 7 ways to promote a better performing team:

Make a commitment Host team building events during business hours Provide ample outlets for feedback to leadership team  Examine your hiring practices: from job posts to interviewing style  Examine your bonus and raise criteria - not everyone is good at asking  Having more women in leadership encourages more women in general 

Your job is a place of business where adults work, but it can still be fun! If you would like to see the stats on women in technology, and reasons why females aren't coming up the pipeline, check out the slideshare from Ingrid's keynote at GlueCon. This is one of the talks that you can't miss during Portland Startup Week! Plus we'll have Q afterwords and happy hour on Quick Left!

But no matter what happens, it’s an unforgettable experience for everyone in the theater.

Join us as our curated speakers from Portland's thriving startup community share their passion, experience, and personality. Attend Ignite Bridgetown on Thursday, February 5th at The Empirical Theater at OMSI. The program will begin at 7:00pm.

Coffee w/ Co-Founders Startup Week Edition!

Portland Startup Week is happening again Feb. 6-10th and, as we did last year, Coffee w/ Co-Founders will meet during this incredible event.

The format is pretty laid back. Come by, grab a cup of coffee, and network with other business owners who are working on incredible projects. We can't wait to hear what you're working on!

Please be aware that we will need to be sensitive to Coava's normal customer traffic. As such, we'll do our best to confine ourselves to the wall in the back side of the shop.

About Coffee w/ Co-Founders: As a business owner you are faced with many challenges. You're forced to make decisions every day that could make or break your business. Coffee w/ Co-Founders is a way to network with other Entrepreneurs to allow free flowing information with the intent to collaborate and help each other. So often we're challenged and there's very little we can do to express our challenges with the people we work with or the people we care about. Think of Coffee w/ Co-Founders as your own personal support group for business owners. We're all here to help!
