      EVENT DETAILS
      PDXWIT Presents: West Side Mixer

      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: 5:30 pm - Doors open  6:15 p.m. - Introductions and Presentation 7:00 p.m. - More networking 7:30  p.m. - Event ends Event FAQ Q: Will there be gender neutral restrooms? A: We have a gender-neutral restroom in our lobby and gendered restrooms closer to the space we'll be using for the event. Q: Is the space ADA accessible?   A: Yes. Q: Will there be food and drink at this event?  A: Yes. Q: What is the parking situation?  A: We have onsite parking. Q: Is there any special information that might help me find the entrance? A: We will be using our main entrance (corner of Hall & Nimbus); the other doors to the building are controlled access. Q: Is there secured bike parking? A: We have bicycle lockers in the rear of the building (users will need to bring their own lock). Q: Should I consider using public transportation? A: Our office is .3 miles (5 minute walk) from the Hall/Nimbus WES station, and serviced by the 76 & 78 TriMet bus routes. It's an option! Q: Can I bring my dog? A: No, we ask that you leave your furry friend home. No pets (only service animals). 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.
