Event description

Description

Interested in joining the stellar crew of PDXWIT volunteers? New to volunteering with us? Want to meet other capable, driven women and allies in tech? You'll be in the right place at our winter volunteer orientation.

PDXWIT is a mostly volunteer-run organization, which means that volunteers are crucial to the success of our mission.

There are plenty of ways to get involved. At the orientation, you'll learn about different volunteer roles, from regular engagements to occasional gigs, get an overview of expectations and processes, have any questions you bring answered, and catch up with other PDXWIT community members.

We can't wait to welcome you!

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.
