    PDX Women In Technology (PDXWIT) Self Care and Mitigating Workplace Stress

    Registration through Eventbrite [https://www.eventbrite.com/e/pdx-women-in-technology-pdxwit-self-care-and-mitigating-workplace-stress-tickets-60954585807] is required to gain entry to this event

    Workplace stress is increasing across the board, and there’s plenty of research and data to prove it. According to the American Institute of Stress, "80% of workers feel stress on the job; nearly half say they need help in learning how to manage stress, and 42% say their coworkers need such help."

    Yet most us have a hard time knowing where to begin, especially when it comes to influencing our company culture. Finding agency and resolve for self-care is priority number one; connecting our personal needs to organizational transformation is the ultimate goal. So where DO we begin?

    Join us June 25th for a panel discussion and action-oriented evening on tackling this complex, critical topic. Co-hosted by workplace wellness consultancy Health Equity Partners, come ready to listen, learn, share and—we hope—leave inspired and motivated to make changes you need both for yourself, your company, and your community. Added bonus: raffle prizes to get you feeling good.

    Women + Tech Third Annual Summer Soirée

    Please RSVP on Eventbrite

    Join us for our third annual summer soiree in partnership with Women Who Code, Lesbians Who Tech, ChickTech, PyLadies PDX, Girls Inc. hosted by Cambia!

    Portland often prides itself on being inclusive, and the tech scene is no exception. We think of ourselves as being the welcoming tech city and congratulate ourselves for our diversity pledges. We read stories and articles on our feeds depicting the inequities — and sometimes monstrosities — our neighbors to the south, in Silicon Valley, face. We feel thankful those thingsdon’t happen here. Unfortunately, those things do happen here, often in the shadows, but those involved don’t know whom to tell or where to go.

    At this year’s summer soiree, our theme is dedicated to openly discussing how we can change the Portland tech culture to be more inclusive, moving away from the bro-culture, and discussing how this community and our allies can work together to make the Portland tech scene a more welcoming place for all. Our conversation starter is “Which label are you sick of hearing in Tech? (e.g. bro-grammer, lady-boss, man-splainer, etc...).”

    Event Agenda:

    5:30pm - Doors open

    6:15pm - Introductions

    6:30pm - Panel begins

    7:30pm - Networking

    The summer soiree is a mixture of networking and speaking segments, and we will be joined by a diverse group of panelists who will share their stories and insights, leaving us with ideas and next steps to strive for the change we desire:

    • Moderator: Terra Soma, Senior Organizational Development and Change Consultant at Legacy Health

    • Lori DeLone, CIO Health Plans at Cambia

    • Ryan Carson, CEO Treehouse

    • Deena Pierott, Founder iUrbanTeen and Black Women in Tech Advisory Board member

    • Katharine Nester, Chief Product and Technology Office Ruby Receptionists

    During the event, we’ll have an Activity Table where people can get creative. This is a fantastic way to meet others if large groups are not your thing. If you have trouble finding it, look for Meg Aul, our Event Activities Director.
