|OWASP Portland 2020 Training Day Update|
|After a lot of consideration, the OWASP PDX leadership team has decided to cancel this year’s training day scheduled for September. With the uncertainty ahead of us, we’ve decided it is best to devote our energy to the continued support of our membership through virtual events.|

What It Is
We’re in the business of helping people grow. Whether you are a beginner, and expert, or somewhere in between, we want to help you develop as a professional. Our mentorship program runs for 6 months. We work to pair you with someone who has experience or is interest in the same area you are looking to mentor or be mentored. It’s about relationships, hands on keyboards, questions, advice. A lot of the program is what you make out of the relationship we seed you with.
