PDXWIT Presents: Humanizing Tech LIVE Podcast Recording


Registration through Zoom https://us02web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_5EfDy1pKQXWMgj3mBo36aQ

Kick off Black Futures && Black History Month by joining Humanizing Tech Podcast hosts Jesselle Hedman and Dawn Mott for a live interview with Rihana Mungin. Mungin has been featured on Nickelodeon (she sent slime to space!) and has collaborated with NASA on numerous life support experiments. She has served on the leadership team at PDXWIT for the last two years while the organization has culturally redefined itself and adapted into an entirely virtual environment. The interview will explore the highs and lows she has experienced in academia while pursuing her Master’s in Mechanical Engineering, including dropping out of college twice (low) to creating synthetic plant roots out of hair weave to send to space for research (high!).

Agenda: 12 p.m. - Event opens / PDXWIT Intro 12:05 p.m. - Interview with Rihana Mungin 12:45 p.m. - Audience Q & A 1 p.m. - Event ends

Purpose: PDXWIT encourages women, non-binary and underrepresented people to join and stay in tech. Our events are inclusive. ALL people who support our purpose are welcome.
