 What We Do

The PDXWIT Movement

We are focused on advancing inclusion in Portland’s technology industry. We believe in reducing the imbalances that exist in tech today so that everyone is represented and skilled in an industry that is shaping the future of humanity. Everything we do ties back to supporting our community through:

  • Community Building and Educational Events

  • Mentorship Program

  • Articles plus our Annual Report on the Portland Tech Industry

  • Podcast: Breaking the Glass Ceiling

  • Sponsorship Program

  • Scholarship Program

  • Advocacy

State of the Community

Each year, Portland Women in Technology (PDXWIT) captures important data about the Portland tech industry, independent of company and group or association affiliation. Our goal is to deeply understand what it is like for people in the community and to identify themes that need to be addressed.

This year, what we found was stark, but not surprising.

We encourage you to use this data to propel change in your companies, and we’ve provided you with an action checklist at the end of the data visualization to support you in talking to your CEOs, bosses, colleagues and taking action yourself.
