  • PDX Women In Technology (PDXWIT) Self Care and Mitigating Workplace Stress

    Registration through Eventbrite [https://www.eventbrite.com/e/pdx-women-in-technology-pdxwit-self-care-and-mitigating-workplace-stress-tickets-60954585807] is required to gain entry to this event

    Workplace stress is increasing across the board, and there’s plenty of research and data to prove it. According to the American Institute of Stress, "80% of workers feel stress on the job; nearly half say they need help in learning how to manage stress, and 42% say their coworkers need such help."

    Yet most us have a hard time knowing where to begin, especially when it comes to influencing our company culture. Finding agency and resolve for self-care is priority number one; connecting our personal needs to organizational transformation is the ultimate goal. So where DO we begin?

    Join us June 25th for a panel discussion and action-oriented evening on tackling this complex, critical topic. Co-hosted by workplace wellness consultancy Health Equity Partners, come ready to listen, learn, share and—we hope—leave inspired and motivated to make changes you need both for yourself, your company, and your community. Added bonus: raffle prizes to get you feeling good.

    You’ll learn about ways to empower yourself to own your data, create and publish content on your own site, and only optionally syndicate to third-party silos. Along the way you’ll get a solid grounding in the history and future of domain ownership, Microformats, IndieAuth, Webmention, Micropub and more!
