Join us for Happy Hour at Simple!
PDXWIT is excited to kick off the New Year with a Happy Hour at Simple! The theme of the evening is “Let’s Talk about Data.” The conversation starter to keep the networking flowing will be “How do you use data in your everyday life?”
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 Simple will provide an introduction to the company and share open job opportunities
Sian RIebe, of Adidas, will tell us about Biases in Data Analytics
Suruchi Kham, Business Analyst, will talk about using Data Analytics for a Cause
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.
4:30 p.m. - Doors open
5:30 p.m. - Introductions, announcements + lightning speakers
6:30 p.m. - Event ends

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.
