Connection. That’s what we all want, but sometimes, it’s not so easy. Join PDXWIT, host Marmoset and Out in Tech’s Digital Corps team for a panel discussion and find out how building websites globally takes on a bigger and better definition of community and connection.
Out in Tech Digital Corps provides web services to LGBTQ+ activists and social entrepreneurs around the world. Since 2017, they’ve built 150 WordPress.com websites for 150 extraordinary LGBTQ+ grassroots organizations in 60 countries.
Facilitated by Crystal Sincoff, you will hear from Manu Gomez, from the Digital Corps team and a website build volunteer, Alex Hare, about their experiences working with Brown Girl Woke and other non-profit organizations to build their custom sites.
The founder of Brown Girl Woke, Doris Tulafau, will join us from Samoa along with their IT & Website Manager, Robbie Allen, to share what it was like working with the Digital Corp to create their website that is empowering girls to lead the future in the Samoa community.
You will also hear from our host Marmoset and find out if they have open positions.
We look forward to seeing you at this fun-filled, semi-global event and to find out how you can be a part of creating a larger, connected community by using your skills to volunteer with the digital corp team and join the revolution around the world!
