Many of us live and/or work on this side of the West Hills but may not have a professional community convenient to the area. Thanks to PDXWIT’s and Salesforce’s support, let’s get together to talk tech and other work topics.
The news at the end of 2017 was dominated by issues we encounter at the workplace regularly, so let’s talk about the part HR has played in our professional experiences. Have you seen or participated in particularly positive human resources instances? Do you have lessons to share from any “less than” situations? Hopefully, this ongoing discussion will provide support to all of us now and in the future.
5:30 p.m. - Doors open
6:00 p.m. - Introductions + Lightning Talks by:
Liz Alves, Employee Communications Strategy and Content Lead at HP: “If #metoo is you too, how HR can help”
Jess Nichols, Assistant Manager at Orangetheory Fitness Orenco Station: “Strong Bodies, Strong Minds”
6:30 p.m. - Networking
7:30 p.m. - Event ends

PDXWIT is a community-based non-profit organization. Our purpose is to strengthen the Portland women in tech community by offering educational programs, partnerships, mentorships, resources and opportunities. We are unifying a supportive environment for current and potential women in tech, all of whom are committed to helping each other. Our goal is to bring together and empower women in tech and to encourage others to pursue tech careers. This is our step towards reducing the gender imbalance in the industry and addressing the current negative effects of that imbalance on women.
Our events are inclusive. ALL people who support our purpose are welcome.
