Annual Mixer

The Oregon Museum of Science and Industry (OMSI) has generously agreed to host the 2017 Women in Science Portland Annual Mixer!  The date is set for Wednesday, November 8th from 530PM-800PM in OMSI's fun and dynamic Turbine Hall.  Appetizers will be provided by Bon Appetit.  Drinks for purchase will be available at the bar. 

To promote our mission of enhancing networking and mentoring across career levels and career types, we are encouraging supporters of women in science and technology related fields of all career levels and types to join us on November 8th!


To encourage attendees to meet new people, WIS will host a "bingo card" networking game with prizes that include:

  1. 2 sets of OMSI After Dark Tickets with an OMSI pint glass
  2. 3 Starbucks gift cards
  3. 2 copies of Ask For It by Linda Babcock and Sara Laschever

Please considering bringing a business card to share during this game to improve your networking output.  

Prizes will be announced at 730PM.


WIS will be hosting a silent auction fundraiser at the mixer to raise money for 2017 Women in Science programming, as well as OMSI's Summer Camp Scholarship for Girls. More information on silent auction items to follow.
