Description :

Are you a woman with current or prior military service? Want to examine how your military and/or veteran experience can help you land a job in today's tech field? Join Portland Women in Tech and Elizabeth Estabrooks to learn about the many opportunities available, find out how you can increase your wage, and how that job you never saw as a tech job can get you in at any level, from the ground up. Don't settle for less than you deserve with your skills. Join us for a night of camaraderie, job-finding, and tools for career advancement.

PDXWIT 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.
