October Happy Hour Networking Event

  • Viewpoint 1510 SE Water Ave #300 Portland, OR, 97214 United States (map)

Join us for happy hour at Viewpoint on October 15th!

We have all experienced uncertainty in our lives and career, but sometimes this uncertainty can lead us in amazing directions. This month’s theme will be “Pivoting from uncertainty to passion.” To help get the networking flowing we will be using the conversation prompt “How have you overcome uncertainty in your career?”

While the event is primarily intended for networking, we will have a short segment at 5:30 p.m. to share important announcements and showcase three members of our community.

  • A representative from our host company Viewpoint will share what they do and what job opportunities are available at the company

  • Kathy Lee, Software Engineer at Microsoft, will give a lightning talk titled "How to push through uncertainty into potential"

  • Molly Lindquist, Founder and CEO at Consano, will talk about Channeling Personal Crisis into Professional Passion

During the event, we’ll have more to do than free-form networking:

  • An Activity Table where people can get creative. This is a fantastic way to meet others if large groups are not your thing. If you have trouble finding it, look for Meg Aul, our Event Activities Director.

  • Table Topics to help break the ice.

  • A section for job seekers and those hiring, to ensure people get connected.

4:30 pm - Doors open
5:30 p.m. - Introductions, Announcements + Lightning Speakers
6:30 pm - Event ends

Our events are inclusive. ALL people who support our purpose are welcome.
