    Peer Pressure: A Peer Coaching Event

    Looking to meet new professional contacts but want to skip the small talk? Interested in getting help in facing work challenges head on? Ready to learn the best way to have positive and supportive professional relationships to become a better leader?

    Welcome to the power of peer coaching.

    Peer coaching is awesome! It's a mutually supportive, powerful form of learning and development where peers work together to reflect, share ideas, teach one another, or solve problems in the workplace through deep inquiry, accountability, direct feedback, and encouragement.

    Peer coaching also helps build emotional intelligence, which is indispensable when stepping into leadership positions. The best leaders take the time to learn and practice skills like active listening, empathy, open communication and effective feedback, which can all be learned through practicing successful peer coaching relationships.

    Join StartOut for a 1-hour peer coaching event where attendees will:

    Learn basic peer coaching strategies like active listening, asking open questions and giving/getting effective feedback Get matched with 3 new people and meet 1:1 together for 15 minute breakout sessions Get to know each other by sharing your story with conversation prompts, practice your new peer coaching strategies, and create meaningful connections Have the opportunity to stay in touch and continue supporting your new contacts throughout the year

    Reinventing WI-FI: Technologies Supporting the Applications & Trends of the Future

    This is a joint event organized by the IEEE Oregon Communication Society and the Portland Chapter of the Society for Information Management (SIM). This event is free and open to the Public Event Banner Abstract: Wi-Fi is an outstanding success story. Although it has been around for decades, it continues to evolve by adding new functionalities, improving performance, and delivering new services. It is difficult to imagine going one day without Wi-Fi. In this talk, we will discuss the latest generation of Wi-Fi technology, namely, Wi-Fi 6. Wi-Fi 6 is a revolution compared to any of the previous Wi-Fi generations because it introduces capabilities that are essential to support a much denser number of devices per access point, best-in-class security, greater capacity, and lower latency. We will cover some performance characteristics of Wi-Fi 6, provide a market update, and conclude with future directions towards Wi-Fi 7.
