About

AWIP was founded in 2017 to address the gaps we saw in tech management roles that were filled by women and other underrepresented groups. As an organization, we believe that this gap largely exists due to lack of targeted skills-based training as well as executive mentorship. AWIP intends to empower women and other underrepresented groups to advance their careers to become product and technical leaders.

Therefore, our two-pronged approach offers skills-based workshops in all of our AWIP chapters globally, as well as a comprehensive Ambassadors program to introduce high-achieving PMs to executive mentors who can open the door to their next leadership opportunity. Since its founding, AWIP has experienced 2,000 percent growth, to a membership of more than 6,000. It is opening chapters in Paris, Seattle, London, Berlin and Boston, and is partnered with or sponsored by the Wharton School of Business, Workday, Redpoint, WeWork, LinkedIn and others.

We work with top companies to put on panelist series and workshops throughout the world to empower quality female and male tech leaders through equality of opportunity.

“This is the right organization at exactly the right time,” said Dan Scheinman, former senior vice president at Cisco, board director at Zoom, SentinelOne and Arista Networks, and AWIP ambassador.

“The future is being built by tech firms in Silicon Valley and beyond. Women—who make up over 50 percent of the human population and 60 percent of graduates with advanced degrees—must be in powerful product roles where decisions are made,” said Tatyana Mamut, former general manager of AWS, vice president of product at Salesforce, senior director at IDEO, and AWIP ambassador. “Our future depends on advancing women in product and in power. We cannot delay.”

Testimonials

I love the AWIP events and how they are held in convenient venues around the Financial District, where I could just drop by after work. I learn a lot from the sessions and from the experienced and aspiring PMs I meet at these events. I am looking forward to the future events and especially, the mentorship program. Great job, Nancy and the AWIP team for coordinating such high quality events and helping women advance in Product!
