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.
Over the past 18 months, Women in Product grew from 10 women with an idea to a community of nearly 7,900 product builders and 6,000 newsletter subscribers. Women in Product is a place where we can celebrate each other's accomplishments, share our knowledge, and build skills to grow our careers. In 2017 we had over 30 monthly events and workshops with 5200 people in total attendance. We hosted the second annual Women in Product conference featuring 30 high-profile senior product speakers, with 1500+ product leaders in attendance and over 50 scholarships awarded. We also expanded the Women in Product community to Seattle and New York.
Looking forward to 2018, we will continue to grow the Women in Product community in Amsterdam, Austin, Boston, Chicago, London, Raleigh, Tel Aviv, and Toronto. We will deepen engagement with sub-communities focused on aspiring and early career PMs, mid-career PMs, Senior PMs and company leaders. We are continuing to invest in monthly events for skill-building, information sharing, and leadership training. We'll also be launching a mentoring app to help connect the WIP community around the world for peer-to-peer mentoring.
A big thank you to all our amazing Steering Team Leaders, City Leaders, sponsors, volunteers, and Women in Product members for all of your support. The Women in Product community is fostered by all of us, and we appreciate everyone's contributions to building this supportive network.
We look forward to connecting with you in 2018!
