State of the Portland Community: Where Marketing & Tech Stand in Our City
November 6 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm| $50
State of the Portland Tech 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.

About the Speaker: Megan Bigelow, President, and Founder of PDXWIT
Portland Women in Technology (PDXWIT), founded in 2012, is a 501c3 non-profit with the purpose of encouraging women to join tech and supporting and empowering them so they stay in tech. What started out as a small group of 15 women meeting socially at a local bar has turned into a highly-engaged and active community of over 5000 people–inclusive of allies–which represents nearly 30% of Portland’s tech workforce.
The organization works hard to be as inclusive as possible of all individuals and welcomes and affirms non-binary and trans people as a matter of principle. The organization has partnered with over 80 tech companies, over 40 of whom are providing ongoing support of the organization as sponsors.
