About Women In Product

Our Story

Our mission is to equip women and non-binary folks to thrive in product management careers at all levels. We want all people to have equitable opportunities to build rewarding careers and shape the products of the future.

Community

Professional Development

Industry Advocacy

Women In Product was founded in 2016 by a group of women product leaders committed to connecting women in the field and increasing their participation and visibility. Five months after the first casual networking event, Women In Product hosted their inaugural conference. 300 attendees gathered but the 3,000 women on the waiting list validated that the organization had identified a critical need.

Today Women In Product is a welcoming community of over 30,000 women and non-binary folk in product.

We believe that true inspiration, impact, and change depends on hearing from, and listening to, people with a variety of perspectives and backgrounds. We strive for our events and our whole organization to include, encourage, and recognize people of all races, ethnicities, genders, ages, abilities, religions, background, income, sexual orientation, and military service.

To learn more about our work read our 2022 Impact Report.

It’s incredible to see how far we’ve come. We didn’t set out to create an organization, but once we started the community, we saw the incredible need for a group who supported and grew women in this critical field.
