🎉 It's hard to believe, but Women Who Code Portland is closing in on five years in Portland. We are so thrilled to celebrate this incredible milestone with you. Join us on Monday, June 17th at New Relic for our 5th Anniversary Celebration, an evening of networking, inspiring speakers, giveaways, and delicious food and drinks.

The theme of the event is "Leading with Intent." It is what we as an organization have aimed to do over the last five years. It's also a theme embodied by our speakers. Our five panelists are all very successful women in engineering, design, and security; and they have also spent their time giving back to others, by creating communities that helped other women and underrepresented minorities enter and stay in the tech industry.
