On April 2nd, come celebrate Equal Pay Day with PDXWIT and Intel!

Many of us live and/or work on the West Side but may not have a professional community convenient to the area. Thanks to PDXWIT’s and Intel’s support, we can get together to talk tech and other work topics.

While the event will be primarily networking focused, we will also have the opportunity to hear from Alyson Crafton, VP of IT at Intel, who will share information about the company.

We will also hear from Rebecca Channer, Founder and CEO of ProsperCity. Channer is committed to closing the gender wage gap and ending salary discrimination in the United States. Rebecca will talk about the importance of salary transparency and compensation clarity when it comes to addressing pay disparities that impact women and people of color. She will share the benefits of transparency to job seekers and employees, while also getting real with employers about transparency as the path to greater diversity, inclusion and prosperity.

We hope to see you there!

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.
Our events are inclusive. ALL people who support our purpose are welcome.
