Portuguese Women in Tech: A few things about creating & growing a community


Feb 16, 2022, 6:00 – 7:45 PM

On our very first event in Porto (Portugal), we welcome Inês Santos Silva, co-founder of Portuguese Women in Tech - a community focused on supporting women in technology.

Diversity, Equity, Inclusion

About this event

The Portuguese Women in Tech community was launched in April 2016 with a dual mission: support women in technology by providing visibility, networking, mentorship, training, sharing opportunities, and also attracting more women and girls to tech.

Together with Liliana Castro, Inês Santos Silva is one of the co-founders of Portuguese Women in Tech. On this CMX Connect Portugal session - our very first event in Porto! -, Inês will share more about her journey as a gender equality advocate at PWIT, as well as insights about driving meaningful and engaged communities and organising initiatives online and also in-person. You can find out more about the PWIT community here.

At the end of this session, you will all be able to meet and network with other fellow community professionals. It's the perfect opportunity to get to ask your questions, share your point of view and get to know amazing people from all over the world based in Porto!

What is the CMX Connect?

CMX Connect is a global community of community managers that aims to help community professionals to thrive through online and in-person events (+30 chapters), education, support and networking.

PS.: when you RSVP, you may be auto featured on this event page as an attendee.
