In this open space conference (or unconference), all are welcome to contribute their thoughts and voice to shape the conversation as we re-imagine work places where everyone has an opportunity to thrive. Breakfast and lunch will be provided.  We look forward to welcoming you into this safe space!  Break-out sessions on topics of your choice will follow where we can focus on learning from each other and creating a community of like-minded humans who—together—can move toward transforming the world of work.

We’d like to thank the Lean, Agile, and Responsive movements for inspiring FoW PDX and the continued innovation by our growing community of attendees. 

Transportation and Parking

Please let us know if you have accessibility needs so that we can make your conference experience as wonderful as possible.

Close-in parking is limited so we recommend public transportation, carpooling, or bicycling if you can. You are welcome to park your bike inside the building (enter on the East side with bikes).


There are several parking spots near SellerEngine that are free all day Saturday, but pay close attention to signage because most spots are 2-hours without passes. This map shows two-hour parking in green and paid parking in orange.

The free spots are under both the East and West bound lanes of the Hawthorne bridge.  We recommend removing all valuables from your car.


Thank You, Sponsors!
