We believe community is important. One of the great local groups that Jama supports is Portland Women in Information Technology. This group is effectively supporting individuals who already work in tech and boosting visibility and making it easier for women who aspire to be in tech to get into the industry.
Personally, I have leveraged this group in so many ways—for jobs, advice and day-to-day support. When I was considering a job change, I was sought, and received, advice from others in the group regarding the companies I was considering. Also, thanks to the group’s advice, I read Lean In, which was tremendously helpful with interviewing and negotiating tips.
On Tuesday, July 23, Jama hosts the monthly Women in Information Technology get-together. We provide a space; the group provides the support for women in our community. We hope to see you there!
