What we're about

Our group supports and celebrates the participation of Portland's Black community members in Portland's professional community. Black women, nonbinaries, and men. Black immigrants and nonimmigrants. We have regular public networking and speaker-focused events. https://bitpdx.org/

All are welcome. Please especially keep in mind that we have Black centered and uplifting conversations in our Slack Channel. https://blacksintechnology.typeform.com/to/ZyRYG2

Looking forward to working with the community of other meetup groups... including LGTBQIA, women, Latinx, students, vets, and other tech fans.

We started with practicing selfempathy. Additionally to overcome challenges, we leverage any individual privileges to help each other. We help our members to interview and prep for top companies in Portland. We also enable learning and career development.

Friends and Guests are welcome collaborators to all events.
