Register for the event here:

The long-awaited AAPI in Tech group is kicking off its first official meetup, Let’s F*cking Go!!

AAPI In Tech centers people who identify as part of the Asian, Asian American, Pacific Islander community, while welcoming people who not only consider themselves as allies, but also take action toward supporting their AAPI comrades. During the event, we will learn more about PDXWIT’s AAPI in Tech initiative, hear from host company Avenue Agency, lightning speakers and have the opportunity to connect in breakout rooms.

Agenda: 12:00 p.m. - PDXWIT and host intro 12:10 p.m. - Raffle! 12:15 p.m. - Lightning talks 12:30 p.m. - Networking in breakout rooms 1:00 p.m. - Event ends

More about AAPI in Tech: The group aims to curate a space where AAPI members feel safe and included, so much so that they have the liberty to speak their minds and listen to others with openness. The group is a place where violence of any kind (verbal or/and physical, online or/and in reality) is not tolerated and civil discussions are reinforced.

The group is also an ally to other communities including but not limited to: the Black community, the Latinx community, the LGBTQ+ community, the disability community, the Indigenous and Native American community, the immigrant community, and so on. It is worth noting that many people belong to multiple communities at the same time. While complexity is to be expected while navigating the ever evolving space of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, it is imperative to acknowledge intersectionality and how it can guide our community through conflicts and issues such as anti-Asian crimes, anti-immigrant rhetoric, the land-back movement, etc.

Our events are inclusive. ALL people who support our mission are welcome.
