    PDX Women in Tech (PDXWIT) Never Take the First Offer

    Cayuse

    Registration through Eventbrite [https://www.eventbrite.com/e/pdx-women-in-tech-pdxwit-never-take-the-first-offer-tickets-54706841636] is required to gain entry to this event

    We’ve all been at the negotiation table, whether we choose to participate or not. While it’s easy to avoid this short-lived discomfort, doing so can cost the average person around $500,000 in lost income over the course of their lifetime. Making the decision to negotiate is the first step — this talk will help with the rest.

    In this talk, we will discuss the circumstances that have lead to the pervasive underpaying of minority groups; the ways that companies can improve the situation; and how we, as job seekers, can take the reins and better advocate for our own value.

    Agenda:

    5:30 p.m. - Doors open

    6:00 p.m. - PDXWIT and Cayuse (event host) introduction

    6:15 p.m. - Presentation Begins

    7:00 p.m. - Networking

    7:30 p.m. - 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.

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

    AgilePDX: Mob Programming

    Cayuse

    Please RSVP on our Meetup page to receive the latest updates: https://www.meetup.com/AgilePDX-User-Group-Portland-Metro/events/257540633/

    Join us for a hands-on workshop experiencing Mob Programming!

    Mob Programming is a software development practice with many benefits - it raises code quality, removes knowledge silos, minimizes mental fatigue, and more. In practice it feels more like a bulldozer than a racecar - unstoppable and thorough. The core of mob programming is pointing many pairs of eyes on a single problem, pushing all the code through a single keyboard. Each month we'll explore different methods for learning to mob well and reaping the rewards of this practice as soon as possible on your own team.

    Change Management in the Startup Ecosystem

    Cayuse

    Change Management in the Startup Ecosystem is a workshop designed to help managers, teams, and leaders understand and manage change in their startups. This will be an interactive, practical session with overviews of established models, enlightening conversations, and activities for applying the models that hold strong in startups.

    Let's be real, in a startup there is always a change happening! It's constant. And if employees can be more aware of the emotional and organizational implications of change, and have strategies and tools to help with these transitions, work will be smoother, and goals will be achieved quicker.

    This workshop is designed for people managers of all levels, but can be beneficial for individual contributors and HR employees as well. Before the session, we'll ask you to think about a change you (and/or your team members) are actively experiencing, and come ready to discuss and work through this real-world scenario.

    Learn to Coach: Tech Managers & Teams

    Cayuse

    Learn to Coach: Tech Managers & Teams is an immersive workshop that breaks down the fundamentals of coaching for managers in startup and technical environments. Over the course of the morning, we'll learn the elements of effective coaching and have time to practice, too!

    This isn't your average coaching conversation - it's hands-on, no slides, and really fun (we promise - you get to build things, make stuff, and break stuff!) It's also not a leadership development class! This workshop is about actionable, real-world techniques that you can apply in your daily work immediately.

    This course is designed for new and mid-level managers who have teams of 1+ people. It can also be a great tool for HR and people managers who are looking to add coaching skills to their toolboxes.

    A Woman-Focused Global Day of Coderetreat

    Cayuse

    AgilePDX is excited to present it’s first annual woman-focused Coderetreat with support from PDX WIT and Women Who Code Portland. Yes, it’s woman-focused, and everyone is welcome.

    Coderetreat is a self-organizing international group of software developers who gather to help each other improve. Their website, if you’d like to go right to the source, is coderetreat.org. Key practices we’ll be focusing on are problem-solving, pairing, and moving to TDD (Test Driven Development). You will be pairing with new pairing partners all day long to help build your network, make new friends, and learn what it’s like to pair with people who use different coding strategies than you do. And Jean and Tracie will be there to support you!

    If you learn one new thing on Saturday that you can take back to the office, you have a win, and so do we! We’ll also be supporting you in understanding the importance of taking care of yourself while coding and strategies for attracting skills transfer opportunities.

    Breakfast and lunch are provided by our sponsor for this event, Cayuse. Come early and meet other attendees for a leisurely chat over coffee!

    Register here so we can get an accurate count: https://www.meetup.com/AgilePDX-User-Group-Portland-Metro/events/255280597/
