Networking Night @ Quick Left: Advanced Negotiation Practices
Quick Left

For our upcoming Networking Night at Quick Left, we're switching things up and featuring a talk on advanced networking techniques by Karen O'Keefe. This is a very important topic that each of us will face throughout our careers, and we're very lucky to have Karen joining us to impart her knowledge and experience.

6:30-6:45 - Women Who Code Intro + Quick Left Intro
6:45-7:45 - Women and Negotiation: Professional Happines, One Conversation at a Time

Women and Negotiation: Professional Happiness One Conversation at a Time

When we hear the word ‘negotiation,’ most of us think about deal-making, buying and selling on behalf of a company, legal settlements, union/management contract negotiations, and mergers and acquisitions. In these cases, the negotiators follow a formal process to achieve their successes.

While important, not everyone is involved in buying and selling in this sense. Many of us are navigating workplace issues on our way to becoming respected professionals and leaders. Examples of our work conversations revolve around getting resources to do our job, priority for our projects, for getting new opportunities, support for our ideas, for advancement, to hammer out budget agreements, a change in title, or a change in work schedule. Negotiating skill is critical to accomplishing these goals. Today, we will learn how to apply a deal-maker’s formal negotiation process to our work conversations in order to achieve our goals, to bring professional happiness and to develop as leaders in our organizations.

Women Who Code Portland - 100 Years of the 19th Amendment in Oregon
Vevo

Join us at Vevo for our first Networking Night of 2020 to celebrate 100 years of the 19th Amendment in Oregon! The U.S. Congress passed the 19th Amendment on June 4, 1919, granting women the right to vote. On January 14, 1920, Oregon became the 25th state to ratify the 19th Amendment. The 19th Amendment reads: "The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any state on account of sex."

While 1920 was a pivotal moment in the long fight for women's rights, the 19th Amendment did not grant all women the right to vote. Native American women had to wait until 1924, when the Indian Citizenship Act granted them citizenship and the right to vote, and it wouldn't be until 1965 that the Voting Rights Act addressed discriminatory practices that previously prevented many people of color from voting. The fight for equal rights continues today and will continue in future elections.

At the Golden Globes, Michelle Williams spoke about women voting in their self-interest. She said: "Women, 18 to 118, when it is time to vote, please do so in your own self-interest. It’s what men have been doing for years, which is why the world looks so much like them. Don’t forget: We are the largest voting body in this country. Let’s make it look more like us."

For this event, we will host a presentation on the history of women's voting rights, followed by breakout sessions with group activities and discussion topics focused around the topics of women's voting rights and equal, accessible, and intersectional activism.
