    PDX WIT #Action: Learn how you can give back to local education efforts

    Join PDXWIT for a night of learning and connecting with local education-focused non-profits. One of our top local issues is education, and we want to support local efforts to empower education equity so that all young people have access to educational and employment opportunities and the chance to thrive.

    Join us for a conversation around pathways to education and ways you can get involved. The event will feature lightning sessions where attendees can learn about and connect with the efforts of local groups that help young people become tomorrow’s superstars.

    Purpose

    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.

    Trans and non-binary people are always welcome at our events.
