WIT PGH is a queer-led organization and community of women and allies championing for the diverse and intersectional experience in tech. We aim for tech equity and advocacy through digital literacy and autonomy.
As Pittsburgh evolves from the City of Steel to a city of technology, women remain highly underrepresented. In fact, studies show that women hold only 25% of the tech jobs in Pittsburgh – some would argue these numbers are even lower. When broken down further on a national level, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, only 5% of computing jobs are held by Asian women, 3% are held by Black women, and only 1% held by Latinx women. Moreover, Pittsburgh ranks very low on the best cities for women in tech to work and live. We are number 46th to be exact.
