placeholder for on-line events



Registration through Zoom: https://us02web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_ZaBb6ygFSWKkakHwRsHMfA is required to gain entry to this event

We tell stories all the time: to persuade someone to support our idea, to explain to an employee how they might improve, or to inspire a team that is facing challenges. It’s an essential skill. But what makes a compelling story? And how can you improve your ability to tell stories that persuade? Learn techniques to use in an interview when you want to convey your experience in a compelling and interesting way. Tell a story to generate the attention you need to move a project forward.

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 a while? PDXWIT’s Experienced Women in Tech events work to foster a community for women like you.

On May 28th, join PDXWIT and host Edgelink for an entertaining and practical event where you will learn:

Why storytelling is such an important skill How to use common narrative structures to make your stories more memorable and effective How to apply these techniques to your own stories Bring a story of your own (factual or fictional); you will have a chance to give it a makeover, and to learn from others as they do the same. The evening will involve a story about storytelling, and then we'll break out into small groups and rewrite the story you brought with you — or write one while you're there. We'll reconvene with a few examples of your story makeover and hear how you used a new framework to enhance your story.

Phil Weber, a professional trainer, fantastic storyteller and local musician will coach us on techniques that can transform the way we tell a tale.

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.
