    Are you a woman with 15 or more years of experience working in technology? Do you want to spend time with other women in tech who understand your point of view as someone who has been in this industry for awhile? PDXWIT’s Experienced Women in Tech events work to foster a community for women like you.

    Join us April 30th at Corvel, where we will talk about effective communication styles, help attendees understand communication across the gender continuum, and identify traits that build credibility and those that act to its detriment. The featured speaker for the evening is Laura Dominic who practices jury consulting professionally and gives talks on communications styles regularly. The event will involve a presentation and roundtable discussions based on communication style. Join us for this engaging dive into communication!

    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.
