Portland Women in Technology (PDXWIT)

Mission

To bring together and empower women in tech and encourage others to pursue tech careers. We are reducing the gender imbalance in the industry and addressing the negative effects of that imbalance on women.

Bottom Line for Portland

PDXWIT produces five no-cost community building events every month where folks can connect and support one another. PDXWIT operates Portland’s most active tech job board, listing nearly 100 jobs per month highlighting opportunities to join companies committed to inclusion. PDXWIT also has a robust mentorship program, with nearly 1000 active matches.

“PDXWIT cultivates ‘brave spaces,’ where women feel truly comfortable to share their successes, goals and failures within. These rare and special places are invaluable to tech newbies, like myself, who are navigating their way forward.”

—Chloe Elliott, business support engineer intern, Jama Software
