Upcoming AWC Events

    • 24 Oct 2016
    • 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM (PDT)
    • The Red Door 3401 Evanston Ave N Seattle, WA 98103 (b/t 35th St & 34th St in Fremont)

    Deets: I hope you can join us for an impromptu get together in Fremont. Nothing formal - just a chance for women in the industry to catch up with one another and enjoy each other's company at the Red Door in Fremont.

    This is a 21 and over venue. We have a back corner to ourselves. Reservations are under Lynne Reynolds.

    Our Honored Guest:  We will have Erin Anacker - Co-founder and COO of Wholestory - with us to talk about Wholestory's innovative approach to professional networking and recruiting and why she passionately feels that "your past is not a predictor of your future".

    At Wholestory, Erin is combining her love of business with her passion for people. In her role, she oversees their community building strategy and business development efforts. When she's not working, you'll find her adventuring outside with her main squeeze and adorable American Mutt.

    Biz bio: WholeStory is an anonymous professional network that couples job experience with personal narrative, specifically around stress-related growth. In generating story-driven data, they are taking a research-backed approach to validating the presence of soft skills, critical for employee success. They've set out to transform hiring culture.

    Costs: Since The Red Door doesn't charge us for this space (and we're not charging you for coming to the event) we just ask that, as a courtesy, please purchase a food or beverage item (even if it's just a cup of tea) to say THANK YOU to the Red Door in Fremont! 

    See everyone there!

    • 03 Nov 2016
    • 6:00 PM (PDT)
    • Living Computer Museum, 2245 1st Ave, Seattle, WA

    AWC leaders will greet you right inside the main door. 

    Join AWC for an evening out at the Living Computer Museum. This the museum's "free" night and also the one night a week that they stay open until 8.

    There is a lot to do and see at the Living Computer Museum. Their computers are restored and interactive, so you can write your own BASIC programs, play vintage computer games like Oregon Trail, Pac-Man and Karateka, or experience what it was like to use a Teletype.

    What to Expect
    The Living Computer Museum facility is located in the SODO district of Seattle, Washington. It covers 15,000 square feet on the second floor of an old warehouse, consisting of both a raised floor computer room and an exhibit area. We suggest allowing one to two hours to enjoy the exhibits.

    The Living Computer Museum is a 501 (c)(3) organization committed to educating the public about these rare, vintage computers.
    Directions and Parking
    The museum is located just south of Safeco Field and just north of Starbucks Headquarters on 1st Avenue South.

    There is free parking in the museum lot, which is on the north side of the museum.

    Taking Public Transit  
    The primary bus routes near Living Computer Museum are 21, 594, 132, 106, 50, 102, 590, and 116. You can also use the Metro Transit Trip Planner to find a bus route.  

    If you are taking Central Link light rail, get off at the SODO station. Walk a few blocks west to 1st Avenue S, then north one block to the museum.

    The entrance is located on the second floor of the museum building. Enter the museum using the entrance on the north side of the building.

    *AWC check-in will be located just inside the main entrance*


    We will then walk to Elysium Fields after touring the museum (~8:00) for snacks and drinks (no host).

    Reservations are under "AWC".

    See everyone there!
