Please join us for the next PDX Engineering Managers Meetup! We'll be meeting to discuss the craft of software and operations management, shipping software, and building great teams!

This meeting will have two parts:

1) Informal meet and greet (food and beverages provided by New Relic)

2) A talk by New Relic's Rachel Etnire! Title: "The Need to Belong: The Neuroscience of Inclusion".

What happens to our brains when we’re rejected in social situations or made to feel less than? Surprisingly, the neuroscience behind these reactions is similar to that of our early ancestors - but their survival was at stake. Most of the threats that our brains now face involve inclusion ( or lack of) in our workplace. In this talk I will address diversity and inclusion, with a focus on inclusivity and the neuroscience behind it.

We look forward to seeing you there!
