Tech Talent Link is invested in the Portland community. We have been a part of Portland Women in Technology (PDXWIT) since the beginning stages of the organization, when Susan Robinson, CEO of Tech Talent Link, attended one of their first networking events in 2012. At that time, it was only around a dozen women meeting in a bar, but Susan jumped at the chance to get involved and volunteered her time during the beginning stages of the mentorship program and job seeker tables.
In 2014, Megan, Founder and current President of PDXWIT, voiced the need for some assistance putting on various networking events. Annie Schrock, TTL Talent Connector, leaped in to helped run things behind the scenes during this vital period for the organization. Her work as one of the organization’s first volunteers ensured that they were able to continue putting on these events, and Annie has seen them grow from 30-40 attendees to over 250! In 2016, when PDXWIT became a non-profit, Annie was asked to be one of the founding board members. She is currently in her second term and has served as Secretary for almost four years.
In addition to our history of volunteer service with PDXWIT, Tech Talent Link has also recently had the opportunity to provide financial support to the organization by becoming a Bronze sponsor. This will help PDXWIT support its operations and fund their Scholarship Program, State of the Community Survey, and many more amazing programs. Tech Talent Link is very proud to work with this organization and looks forward to continuing our support.
