    PDX Women in Tech (PDXWIT) January Happy Hour Networking Event

    SurveyMonkey

    Registration through Eventbrite [https://www.eventbrite.com/e/pdxwit-january-happy-hour-networking-event-tickets-40888648047] is required to avoid having to manually check-in at the event

    Join us for happy hour at SurveyMonkey on January 23rd.

    People often talk about creating a work culture that allows people to “bring their best self to work.” To start the conversation, we are asking “what is an important personal value you bring to work?” with an aim to allow us to explore our best selves.

    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 SurveyMonkey, including what they do and what job opportunities are available.

    Amy King, Senior Product Manager at Digimarc [https://www.digimarc.com/], will talk about picking the right approach to design for emerging vs. established technologies.

    Madonnalisa Chan, Freelance Information Architect - Taxonomist, will talk about making values-based decisions in your career.

    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 p.m. - Doors open/Networking

    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.

    Our events are inclusive. ALL people who support our purpose are welcome.
