    PDXWIT March Happy Hour

    Quantum Spatial

    Registration through Eventbrite [https://www.eventbrite.com/e/pdx-women-in-tech-pdxwit-march-happy-hour-tickets-43100149708] is required to gain entry to this event

    Join us for happy hour at Quantum Spatial on March 20th.

    Holding other people accountable is one thing; holding yourself accountable is something else altogether. This month, we want to explore self-accountability and talk about what you can do to hold yourself more accountable this year.

    While the event is primarily intended for networking, we will have a short segment at 5:30 to share important announcements and showcase three women in our community.

    Introduction to Quantum Spatial, including what they do and what job opportunities are available.

    Maureen Jemison, Associate Vice President, Series25 Development at CollegeNet, will share how to teach yourself to be a good manager.

    Gabrielle Blackwell, Business Development Leader at Cloudability, will talk about transitioning into leadership as a woman and how to find help outside of your employer.

    During the event, we’ll have more to do than free-form networking:

    • An Activity Table where people can get creative. This is a fantastic way to meet others if large groups are not your thing. If you have trouble finding it, look for Meg Aul, our Event Activities Director.

    • Table Topics to help break the ice.

    • A section for job seekers and our sponsors who are hiring, to ensure people get connected.

    Agenda:

    4:30 p.m. - Doors open/Networking

    5:30 p.m. - Introductions, Announcements + Lightning Speakers

    6:30 p.m. - Event ends

You will be learning about remote sensing technologies including LiDAR, aerial imagery, hyperspectual imagery and field collection procedures.

    Speakers will explain their educational background and how you can enter this growing and in-demand industry. Remote sensing has many opportunities for women.
