Event description
Many of us live and/or work on the west side of the metro area but may not have a convenient professional community nearby. Thanks to PDXWIT and DAT’s support, we can get together to talk tech and other work topics. The event will be primarily networking focused, but we will have a couple guest speakers:

A representative from DAT will share information about the company, including any opportunities that are available.

Guest speaker, Jenessa Stieglitz, Product Owner at Nike, will talk about Shine Theory: a practice of mutual investment with the simple premise that "I don't shine if you don't shine." It's a term to describe a commitment to collaborating with rather than competing against other people—especially other women.

We will also have a job seekers section where attendees can learn about the various employment opportunities available right now. 

Agenda:
5 pm - Doors open 
5:45 p.m. - Introductions and Presentation
6:15 p.m. - More networking
7  p.m. - Event ends

Purpose:
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.
