PDX Women in Tech (PDXWIT) Happy Hour Networking Event
All Ages
More info: eventbrite.com

We are celebrating Giving Tuesday by joining forces with Free Geek for our Happy Hour on November 28th.

PDXWIT exists as a way to encourage, support and empower women in the Portland tech community. One way to feel empowered is to lift each other at work, and because we feel this is so important, we’ve made it the theme of this event. The conversation starter is “What’s something new you can do to empower your coworkers and colleagues?”

In the spirit of giving, we will be offering a number of ways to give back to your community:

  • Donate your used electronics to support Free Geek
  • P:ear is organizing a “Women Supporting Women” bra and underwear drive! For young, homeless women, it is hard to find support for their diverse and changing bodies. Let’s give them the support they need! Bring in gift certificates to Ross or other easy-to-access clothing stores for custom purchases, or raid your wardrobe for new or very lightly used bras. All sizes are needed. Practical styles encouraged, including sports and maternity. New underwear also encouraged.
  • Sign up to be an individual or sustaining supporter for PDXWIT and get a green shirt!

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

  • Introduction to Free Geek, including what they do and what job opportunities are available.
  • Pippa Arend, Development Director at p:ear, will talk about Ladies Supporting the Ladies.
  • Commissioner Smith will talk about how Multnomah County is giving women and people of color access to startup funds.

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 those hiring, to ensure people get connected.
