Women in Product is a non-profit organization dedicated to increasing diversity and inclusion in product management. Founded by senior women product leaders in Silicon Valley, Women in Product's mission is to educate, empower, and create a global community of women product managers to build impactful products at scale.
This year, we partnered with WIP corporate sponsors and individual contributors and hosted 38 monthly skill building workshops and panel style events, launched two new WIP communities in New York City and Seattle, and hosted WIP second annual conference. The conference was attended by 1542 women PM and 10 male allies representing product leaders from across the globe. Our speakers comprised of product leaders and executives from various tech companies including Deborah Liu, VP of Marketplace at Facebook; April Underwood, VP of Product at Slack; Avni Shah, VP of Product Management at Google; Connie Chan, Partner at Andreessen Horowitz; Carol Isozaki, Founder and President of Strategic Brand Intelligence, and Jess Lee, Partner at Sequoia, just to name a few. We were able to sponsor 60 women PMs from under represented communities who wouldn’t, otherwise, be able to attend the conference.

"Wanted to send a big shout out to the incredible women who organized the Women in Product event yesterday. I was totally blown away by what an incredible group of women you brought together. It's a heroic undertaking to make it happen (especially when I think most if not all of you have ridiculously demanding day jobs?!). So thank you! Was an honor to be there."
"I was inspired not only by the women on stage but also by the women sitting next to me, listening, asking questions, and sharing their knowledge."
"Thanks so much for putting together a wonderful event that has inspired me beyond my dreams. I'm not in the Bay Area, so I'd never heard of many of the amazing women you brought together. However, the caliber of women at this event was impressive and something that will stay with me for a lifetime."
Phedra Arthur Iruke, Nava PBC
"While most of the day left me feeling empowered, there are still moments that reminded me of how far we have yet to go. [...] When certain behavior gone on for long enough, it becomes the norm, and we stop recognizing that it is even a problem."
Rebecca Dobbin, Tasktop
“The fact that I was surrounded by 1500 women in tech just wowed me. Honestly, it gave me goosebumps.”
