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
Articles plus our Annual Report on the Portland Tech Industry
Podcast: Breaking the Glass Ceiling
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.
Join us for an upcoming event to network, expand your community, and learn from industry experts! Visit our event page to register for upcoming events. We look forward to seeing you soon!

Serving as a mentor is not only an opportunity to have a true impact on a person’s life but is also a mutually rewarding experience. Our mentorship program matches mentor with mentee based on their specific needs. Once connected, you create the structure and necessary time commitment.
