    PDX Women In Tech Happy Hour Networking Event

    Registration through Eventbrite is required to avoid having to manually check-in at the event

    Join us for happy hour at Zapproved on October 24th.

    Every day we have the opportunity to learn something new about ourselves. Since PDXWIT has come to be the safest spaces in our community to learn and grow, we’ve decided to make the theme of this event discovering something new. The conversation starter “Name one of your ‘superpowers’ at work” gives everyone permission to stop being so modest and start bragging about how awesome you are!

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

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

    Kari Fass, Company & Community Relations Manager at LaunchCode, will tell us how to see your career through the eyes of a coach.

    Lisa Wagner, President at Xinnia, will teach us how to be a secret weapon.

    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 those hiring to ensure people get connected.


    4:30 PM: Doors open/Networking

    5:30 PM: Introductions, Announcements + Lightning Speakers

    6:30 PM: Event ends

    Purpose: PDXWIT is a community-based non-profit organization. Our purpose is to strengthen the Portland women in tech community by offering educational programs, partnerships, mentorships, resources and opportunities. We are unifying a supportive environment for current and potential women in tech, all of whom are committed to helping each other. Our goal is to bring together and empower women in tech and to encourage others to pursue tech careers. This is our step towards reducing the gender imbalance in the industry and addressing the current negative effects of that imbalance on women.

    Trans and non-binary people are always welcome at our events.
