2020 seems to be the year of the pivot. Companies are having to redefine the way they do business, many families are having to sort out how to merge their professional and personal worlds, and due to an unprecedented number of layoffs across industries, folks have a unique opportunity to consider moving in a new professional direction.
Join PDXWIT and The Home Depot QuoteCenter as we bring together speakers who can talk about the process of pivoting into a new career or a new type of role within tech. We will also hear about current job opportunities from our host for the evening, Quote Center!

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.
