PDXWIT February Happy Hour: Careers, Talks, Connection



Registration through Zoom is required to gain entry to this virtual event

Our career successes don’t happen in a vacuum. During this Black History & Futures Happy Hour, we’ll explore the vital role that community and networks play in the career journey.

We will feature dynamic lightning talks by Dr. Amber Lenon, Astrophysicist and Data Analyst at iRobot, as well as Tanisha Payne, Software Engineer at Puppet. We’ll also highlight some Black-led organizations in the PNW and beyond.

In keeping with the theme of community, this month we’ll be holding more space for community networking–but you don’t have to wait until then to meet someone new! Connect with folks in the chat throughout the event as well.

P.S. If you were hoping to meet with recruiters, check back next week for Job Board LIVE!

We will have ASL interpretation and closed captioning throughout. Please get in touch at [email protected] with any additional accessibility needs you may have.

Hope to see you there!
