Special Edition PDXWIT Happy Hour: Celebrating AAPI in Tech

May 18 @ 5:00 pm - 6:15 pm

***Registration through Zoom https://us02web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_4PI7fGzcR6OpnFYOISqfBg is required to gain entry to this virtual event***

Join us for a special edition Virtual Happy Hour hosted by Autodesk and centered on the Asian American and Pacific Islander experience in tech.

We will have our usual Recruiter Roll Call and Virtual Job Seekers Lounge, but we will also be introduced to APANO, a rad organization in Portland directly supporting and elevating the AAPI Community. Attendees will learn how they can plug in and support their efforts and will be invited to join PDXWIT in financially supporting them. Those who donate to these organizations during the event will be entered into a special raffle, and PDXWIT will be matching all funds raised.

All attendees will be entered to win gift certificates to some amazing local AAPI owned businesses!

And for those of you looking to connect on camera, we will have face-to-face networking at the end of the event!

We will have ASL interpretation and live closed captioning throughout.
Hope to see you there!
