PDXWIT Presents: The Intersectional Roots of Pride

placeholder for on-line events



Registration for this event in Zoom required: https://us02web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_E62jdVLhT5-MtUbGueHbZg

Pride is something we do daily as part of our authentic selves. To honor our LGBTQ+ history and acknowledge our current state of affairs regarding racial injustice, let’s get together and hear stories about our community! Call it a protest, call it an uprising, the history of Pride began at Stonewall with three courageous activists, Stormé DeLarverie, Marsha P. Johnson and Sylvia Rivera.

Join PDXWIT with our virtual host Zapproved to honor our past, acknowledge our present and discuss a better future together!

Local heroes Miki Demeter, Daelyn Moyer and Vernetta Dorsey will be sharing how they are navigating in this new normal.

Hazel Valdez and Crystal Sincoff will be your hosts for the evening, and Monica Enand, CEO from Zapproved, will share thoughts and support of the LGBTQ+ tech community in Portland.

There will also, of course, be time to catch up with old friends and network, as well as learn all about Zapproved, who is making this event possible.

This event will sell out, so RSVP soon!

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.
