What we're about

Advancing Women in Product (AWIP) is a community that fosters and supports women who are passionate about product. We especially focus on women who are passionate about bridging the gender disparity for women product managers and strategists.

All current and future PMs and product strategists/marketers welcome! We host monthly get-togethers, as well as featured speakers for a Women's Product Summit quarterly. Starting in 2017, we will also launch a Women in Product mentoring program to match current PMs with aspiring PMs.
