PDXWIT Happy Hour is back, and this time we are celebrating Latinx in Tech and Latinx Heritage Month!
Join us and host Pixelspoke to learn more about Adelante Mujeres, an org that is working to build a more just society by empowering Latinas to lead. Emcees Amanda Lopez and Natalie Ruiz will keep us on schedule.
We have two Lightning speakers who will speak of how they leverage technology in their work. Sylvia Salazar will share with us how Tono Latino is changing the way Latinx folks are portrayed in politics and the media. Naily Nevarez, a multidisciplinary designer and social justice advocate, will share more about how they leverage technology in their work.
During our Recruiter Roll Call, local recruiters and hiring managers will share open positions at their companies. And as always, we will have recruiters available to connect about jobs via our Virtual Job Seekers Lounge in Slack.
For those of you looking to network, we’ll have optional on-camera opportunities as well as in the chat. You will have the option to provide your address at registration so we can send you some goodies ahead of the event
We will have ASL interpretation and live closed captioning throughout. Please get in touch with any additional accessibility needs you may have.
