Portland, OR 97214, USA (map)



WHAT: Back Fence PDX and VOX SIREN are partnering to showcase the First EVER Live Storytelling event featuring SUPER: WOMEN IN TECH. WHO: Badass local and out-of-town women working in the technology industry telling true, unscripted stories WHEN: FRI | JAN 27, 2017 WHERE: REVOLUTION HALL | 1300 SE STARK ST | PDX 97214


FEATURING: Women telling their true, personal stories of influencing the way shit gets done and blowing new doors into the thick walls of the patriarchal techo-chamber! Women have been relegated to the background in this environment for too long, their important contributions overlooked – but that all changes now as we bring SIX women to the Rev Hall stage to share their never been told, true stories.

Story themes include Origins of My Superpower, Big Failure Big Gain, Embracing My Bossy Bad Self, Best / Worst / Oddest Day on the Job, That Moment I Just Stopped Caring, Shaking Hands with My Inner Weird.

Storytellers include women of all colors and cultural backgrounds who are killing it in tech: DOMINIQUE DeGUZMAN, Twilio MELINDA CAMPBELL, Puppet Inc. MARIA WEBSTER LEAH SIDDALL, Elemental SAIRA WEIGEL, Wieden+Kennedy And one more announced soon!


Change happens through story. Portland’s BIGGEST LOCAL TECH GIANTS Puppet Inc. and Elemental are sponsoring this livestreamed event! They understand that the Portland Tech Diversity Pledge is more than a piece of paper! We also have the support of the Portland Development Commission, Client Joy, Travel Portland, and Wieden+Kennedy.

BONUS!! With the support from our sponsors we’re partnering with Wieden+Kennedy to produce the first SUPER: WOMEN IN STEM coloring book. This book will be filled with illustrations and short stories about 15 local and national women in STEM fields (throughout history!) and will be available at the event and at local bookstores after.

PLUS! A percentage of our proceeds will go to Black Girls CODE. Black Girls CODE is devoted to showing the world that black girls, when given the opportunity, excel at code. Their ultimate goal is to provide African-American youth with the skills to occupy some of the 1.4 million computing job openings expected to be available in the U.S. by 2020, and to train 1 million girls by 2040. We are thrilled to be putting this capital toward a cause we believe in!

ADMISSION: $10-$17 ADVANCE, $20 DOOR. 16+, $10 tickets with Student ID. There are a limited number of $50 VIP tickets reserved in the front rows until 7:55.
