Description

Please RSVP on Eventbrite

Join us on Thursday, April 13th at 5:00 for an informal fireside chat with Congressman Earl Blumenauer at New Relic. Earl Blumenauer is the U.S. Representative for Oregon's 3rd congressional district, serving since 1996. His district includes most of East Portland and cities to the east of Portland.

We will use this as an opportunity to learn how our top issues — Civil Rights, Women's Health, Gender Equity, and Health Care — are playing out on the national stage. The Congressman has an hour to answer any questions we have, and we will be drawing raffle tickets so that as many people as possible have a chance to ask questions.

The Congressman will be available for from 5:30 to 6:30, so please show up on time and come prepared with questions. We are limiting this event to 200 people so we can all fit in the space, so please RSVP ahead of time if you’d like to attend. Light snacks and drinks will be served.

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.

Trans and non-binary people are always welcome at our events.
