I am an official volunteer of PDX Women In Tech. As such, I’m using this channel to promote their incredible Scholarship Program.

The award winner will be provided travel, registration, and/or per diem to attend a technology-related or a women-in-business conference or workshop with a cap of $2,500. The conference or workshop must be held in the US within the contiguous 48 states. The conference must take place within 9 months of the award date. If you are selected as the awardee, you must confirm acceptance with PDXWIT within a week of being chosen or you will forfeit your award.

This past October, the organization extended its programming into Vancouver. In support of Camila Morrison, I joined the ranks of volunteers to support the ambitions of others to meet promise and potential.

So here’s to PDX Women In Tech ‘Moving Strategy Forward’.
