Portland Future Leaders In Tech - July Meetup (Diversity and Inclusion Starter Pack)
Puppet

July has a reputation for scorching hot temperatures - especially in the afternoons and early evenings. Luckily, you can beat the heat by spending your Wednesday evening with pdxFLIT! This month, our event will revolve around diversity and inclusivity. It will feature a few all-star speakers and some time to mingle and interact outside of speaking time. This month, you'll have a chance to see the following presentations:

Tiberius Hefflin - "The Monster On the Project". Tiberius works for Go Boldly. She will be speaking about working and dealing with toxic coworkers.

Perry Eising - "This Is the Signal You've Been Waiting For: Diversity, Economy, and Messaging". Perry is a former faculty lead from Epicodus. They have contributed a wealth of knowledge to the Portland tech community. Perry's latest Medium article is about making tech events more gender inclusive. You can find it here: https://blog.usejournal.com/gender-inclusive-tech-events-a-hands-on-how-to-guide-ec93ee477035

Marcus Carter - 'Diversity and Inclusion In the Workforce: Themes, Trends, and What We Might Do Differently". Marcus is a recruiter at Cloudability.

This month's event is generously being sponsored by Puppet. Food and drinks will be provided at this event. We're always looking for sponsors to help provide refreshments, catering, and other resources for future events. If you are interested in helping us with this in the future, please contact Masen at masenmatthews@gmail.com.

pdxFLIT is also looking for volunteers! If you're interested in volunteering with us, there will be information about it at this event. Information about these opportunities will also be coming via Meetup and other online forums (Twitter, Slack) in the coming weeks.

Doors open at 5 30 PM and talks will happen at roughly 6 PM. There will be time for mingling, conversation, and networking outside of the speaking times. If you need to come a bit later, don't worry about getting locked out! Just post on this page and somebody can come downstairs and let you in. This event will be happening at Puppet Labs on SW 2nd Avenue.

Are you interested in speaking at a future pdxFLIT event? We're always looking for speakers - no experience is necessary! If you're interested in giving a talk, please contact Katie at katiefujihara@gmail.com.
