Collaboration, support, and the ability to clearly communicate about your project are critical factors for success. The brainchild of Nathan Keene and Abeer Eltanawy, this event is designed to:

  • encourage networking and collaboration
  • improve presentation skills
  • create access to mentors
  • provide a safe space to learn and grow
  • help you accelerate your project

Who is it for?

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.
