Katharine Nester, Ruby CPTO, wins first ever PDX Women in Tech Award.

We’re excited to share that Ruby’s own Chief Product and Technology Officer, Katharine Nester, has been awarded the first ever Best Contributor Award by PDX Women in Tech!

PDX WIT is a local Portland non-profit dedicated to celebrating and empowering women in the Portland Tech Community. Katharine was chosen to receive the Best Contributor Award by a panel of judges because of her work to increase opportunities for women in tech. Her hard work has paid off at Ruby and she’s increased female staff in her department by 50% this year! She’s also been heavily involved in App Camp for Girls, participated in PDX WIT panel events, and taken part in the PDX Mentorship Program.

We’re incredibly proud of the influence Katharine has had at Ruby and in the Portland tech community and can’t wait to see what comes next!
