    PDXWIT #Action Presents Women’s March on Washington: Portland

    Cafe Ponte

    RSVP here - https://www.eventbrite.com/e/pdxwit-action-presents-womens-march-on-washington-portland-tickets-31244057818

    Want to participate in the “Women’s March on Washington: Portland” with a supportive group? PDXWIT will be marching together for gender equality and women’s rights. We will not stand by silently as policies are enacted that systematically subjugate women, people of color and other underrepresented groups. There is power in numbers, and together we stand united against bias and prejudice.

    While we are not officially affiliated with the “Women’s March on Washington,” we stand in solidarity with their mission and want to provide a supportive community for women to participate in Portland.

    We are meeting at 11:30am in front of Cafe Ponte across from the Tom McCall Waterfront Park. Look for people in green PDXWIT t-shirts! The march begins at 12 and continues to 3:30. Please RSVP so that we know how many people to expect.

    All are welcome to march with us.

    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.
