AgilePDX: Virtual Pub Lunch on Hiring - What qualities do you hire for?
Virtual zoom location

Ever struggled to get to a downtown or West side location to join a lunch discussion? Then a virtual "pub lunch" may be the answer!

This agile lunch discussion is a collaborate effort between Seattle and Portland agile minds, and we're hoping it won't stop there. The event is held on a zoom conference line. It is modeled after the AgilePDX Downtown Pub Lunch, which is an open round table with discussion topics sourced from the participants. Towards the end of each lunch discussion we will ask for topic suggestions and vote which one to pick for our next meeting. And we'll close out the discussion with a quick review feedback - so we can learn what works and what doesn't.

For this kick-off meeting, we will borrow the AgilePDX Downtown Pub Lunch topic about Hiring: What qualities do you hire for? Technical skills, learning attitude, team fit, emotional intelligence,... and to what extent does your search focus on building team diversity? These questions are only the beginning.

Join us in this new experiment and connect with the greater community of the Pacific Northwest. Visit our meetup page to RSVP and get the zoom conferencing information: https://www.meetup.com/AgilePDX-User-Group-Portland-Metro/events/252496023/

AgilePDX: Virtual Pub Lunch on Hiring - Agile Outside of Engineering
Virtual zoom location

Have traffic and work schedules prevented you from joining an agile event on a topic which could help you or your teams? Then a virtual "pub lunch" may be the answer!

This agile lunch discussion is a collaborative effort between Seattle and Portland agile minds, and we're hoping it won't stop there. The event is held on a zoom conference line. We've learned using video is best, and you might consider your environment before joining -- find a quiet space where you won't be interrupted or feel self conscious. We're monitoring chat as a back channel, so if you can't find a spot in the discussion, add your question in chat and our hosts will try to work it in.

This weeks topic: Agile Outside of Engineering! The tech industry has collaborated for some time now to find new and better ways to tackle complex problems and deliver value to our stakeholders. And it seems companies have taken notice and agile "good practices" or "lessons learned" are being adopted outside of engineering groups. Methods like limiting your work in progress, planning & working in smaller increments, daily updates & coordination, review & adapt sessions are popping up in other departments and disciplines. Invite your friends to share stories and insights of such agile practices outside of software teams and IT departments. We can all learn from each other and would love to see new voices join, sharing unique challenges and solutions.

Please RSVP at our Meetup event and get the zoom connection info: https://www.meetup.com/AgilePDX-User-Group-Portland-Metro/events/254179707/

Portland Lunch 2.0: Virtually
Online

Just because we're still socially distanced doesn't mean we can't connect.

As the weather starts to change, vaccines continue to roll out, and the glimmer of recovery grows ever brighter, there's no better time to reconnect with folks in the community with whom you've lost touch. And there's no better way to gather with a random smattering of your startup community peers than Portland Lunch 2.0.

No agenda. No talks. Just lunch with your community.

And while we'd love to buy lunch for you like we used to, this time, there is no such thing as a free lunch. You'll have to bring your own. Or not.

Changemaker Channel: Buchi Asemota, Executive Director of Our Streets
Virtual (Zoom)

This event is free, open to the public, and hosted by Field Day on Zoom.

Our Streets brings people together to respond to the needs of the community and change the dynamic of living, primarily serving people experiencing housing and food insecurity. With a true grassroots origin, the nonprofit began with a group of friends who observed the needs of their community and were inspired to take action in the midst of the Black Lives Matter movement and COVID-19 pandemic in 2020. Propelled by community momentum, the nonprofit has grown quickly – they’re now supplying over 600 meals to six shelters per day with 30 staff members and a permanent kitchen (plus a second opening soon).

In this Changemaker Channel, join us for a fireside chat with Buchi Asemota, Executive Director of Our Streets, that’ll leave you feeling empowered to make a change within your community.

What we’ll cover:

  • Our Streets’ grassroots beginnings
  • What it means to work in alignment with the values of the BLM movement
  • Their exponential growth of operations (and why they dropped “PDX” from their name)
  • Questions from the audience

Fact: Nearly half of entrepreneurs do their marketing all by themselves.

Whether you’re a CEO moonlighting as your company’s social media manager, work with a talented generalist who is juggling a lot, or contract with an agency to help you scale your content, it’s important to take stock of whether you’re making the most effective use of your resources to move the needle on social media.
