Join us for May Happy Hour at Vacasa!

PDXWIT is looking forward to seeing you at Vacasa for our next happy hour! The theme for this month is Accessibility in Technology. The conversation starters to keep the networking flowing will be “How can tech be more accessible?” and “What does an accessible tech environment mean to you?”

While the event is primarily intended for networking, we will have a short segment at 5:30 to share important announcements and showcase some individuals in our community.

  • An employee of Vacasa will provide an introduction to the company and share open job opportunities.
  • Ilana Davis, Creative Director at Ilana Davis LLC, will do a lightning talk titled, “Designing for Inclusion.”
  • Tasha Zuniga, Full Stack Javascript Developer, will talk about fonts and how to make them accessible.

During the event, we’ll have more to do than free-form networking:

  • 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.
  • Table Topics to help break the ice.
  • A section for job seekers and our sponsors who are hiring, to ensure people get connected.
