Have you ever taken a mental health day or thought twice about putting your therapy appointment publicly on your work calendar? Let’s explore these and other topics at PDXWIT’s virtual Happy Hour themed around Destigmatizing Mental Health Conversations in the Workplace. This lunch hour is hosted by Lytics.

We will have ASL interpretation and closed captioning throughout.

Featuring Jackie Wirz, PhD, lightning speakers will share their stories to help shift some of our associations around mental wellness in the office.

Companies with open roles on the PDXWIT job board will share their open positions (local and remote) during our Recruiter Roll Call. You’ll have a chance to chat with them in breakout rooms after the presentation, so bring your questions, your professional statements, and be ready to share your brilliant skills and qualifications.
