Speak Up: The 2018 State of the Community Survey is Here

We’re proud that our community represents 30% of the Portland workforce. To make sure that we’re in tune with our community’s voice, we want to hear more about you. Today, we’re launching our annual survey, created in partnership with SurveyMonkey and data visualization provided by Planet Argon.

This year we are doubling-down on gathering data related to discrimination and harassment — we want to know what it is really like for you in the tech industry. Please share the positives, too; we need to know both good and bad. This new information, coupled with more familiar questions, will give us a new level of understanding to better serve all of you.

"The 2018 State of the Community survey is the only survey of its kind that annually measures the specific challenges our communities faces in Portland's tech industry,” said Megan Bigelow, president and co-founder of PDXWIT. “The results of this data will allow us to laser-focus our attention on what areas need it most."

To ensure wide reach, this survey will also be distributed in TechFestNW’s daily conference bulletin. Meg McLaughlin, TechFestNW’s Startup and Sponsorship Director said “PDXWIT has built an amazing community dedicated to inclusivity in the workplace. We are proud to kick off their survey at TechfestNW because the insights it provides are critical components for the evolution — and growth — of Portland tech.”

We need your help getting the word out, so please share this survey throughout your networks and, if possible, inside of your workplaces. It only takes five minutes and we’d like you to speak up.
