Join us Wednesday, December 11th at Bumped for our 5th Annual Celebration + Awards Ceremony!

2019 has been another big year for the PDXWIT and we are thrilled to come together at bumped, for the FIFTH year, to celebrate the holidays and what we’ve accomplished. The theme of the event will be Celebrating our Community. In honor of our theme, Celebrating Community, our conversation starter for the night will be “How do you celebrate your community?”

We will also be hosting our annual Awards Program. Stay tuned for details on how to nominate and vote for Best Contributor and Best Speaker!

While the event is primarily intended for networking, we will have a short program to hear from our sponsors and introduce and announce awards.

During the event, we’ll have more to do than free-form networking:

An activity table where people can get creative. This is a fantastic way to meet others if large groups are not your thing. If you have trouble finding it, look for Meg Aul, our Event Activities Director.

Table topics to help break the ice.

A section for job seekers and those hiring to ensure people get connected.

A #GiveGuide table with raffle prizes and other goodies for folks who decide to support PDXWIT that evening.


5:30 p.m. - Doors open / networking

6:30 p.m. - Introductions and Awards

7:30 p.m. - Additional networking and celebration of our community

8:00 p.m. - Event ends

PDXWIT is a community-based non-profit organization. Our purpose is to strengthen the Portland women in tech community by offering educational programs, partnerships, mentorships, resources and opportunities. We are unifying a supportive environment for current and potential women in tech, all of whom are committed to helping each other. Our goal is to bring together and empower women in tech and to encourage others to pursue tech careers. This is our step towards reducing the gender imbalance in the industry and addressing the current negative effects of that imbalance on women.

Our events are inclusive. ALL people who support our purpose are welcome.
