We’re spending a lot of time at home, so we would like to know what tools everyone is using to stay connected to their community. This month’s theme is Keeping Community Alive. To facilitate this discussion our conversation starter will be: What tech tools are you using to stay connected to your community?
While the event is primarily intended for networking, we will have a short segment at 5:30 to share important announcements and showcase two women in our community.
- Donna Neerhout, Principal Content Experience Designer at Autodesk, will provide an introduction to the company and share open job opportunities
- Anusha Neelam, PDXWIT Scholarship recipient, will talk about developing relationships at work and in the community
- Hazel Valdez, Operations Manager for PDXWIT, will talk about Food Technology tools during the pandemic.
- We will also have a Virtual Job Seekers Lounge, where attendees looking for career opportunities can connect in real time with recruiters who are hiring!

5:15 p.m. – Introductions, Announcements + Lightning Speakers

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.
