5 Things - Especially For Women in Tech And Digital - We Love This Week! - May 30, 2017

5 things - especially for women in tech and digital - we love this week!


Hi, I’m Brittany, I work at PowerToFly on the Talent Growth Team. When I’m not planning an event or working on career advice for women, I’m scouring the internet for tools that can uplift us. Yes, I get to google for my job… among many other things. So here’s a roundup of the five things I most enjoyed. Let me know your feedback - or if you have something to contribute - by emailing hi@powertofly.com

Clue App

This is a big one! My coworker suggested I include this in the list, and having had the app on my phone for a few years, I’m not sure why I didn’t think of it first. Basically, this app helps you be in tune with your body. Lots of people use it to track their periods, but you can also monitor your sleep, mood, food, and body’s changes. Oh, they also send these educational emails about your body. Equal parts science and real, they’re answering the questions you may be too afraid to ask, and they’re doing a doing a pretty awesome job, if I do say so myself.

Lady List Events

I made a New Year’s Resolution to get out of the house more (#HermitLife!), so lists like this are amazing. Ruby Anaya and Tessa Petrich started a tiny letter to aggregate tech events in both SF and NY. It’s made for and by ladies, so you won’t have to worry about going to events and being the only woman there. Sign up!

Serena Williams Is Bringing Diversity To Tech

Ok, I had to include this because I’m constantly in awe of this woman. Seriously, what can’t she do? To bring you up to speed, Serena is joining the Survey Monkey board and says “What is important to me is to be at the forefront of the change and to make it easier for the next person that comes behind me.” While it’s unclear what she’ll be doing exactly, don’t be surprised if she also cures cancer and solves tech diversity problem at the same time. Because, you know, that would just be a casual day for Serena Williams.

The Girl Cried Look

Anybody else fashion challenged? Just me? Ok. Anyway, this weekly newsletter, curated by Divya Prabhakar, assembles some really cool looks, which she presents in a collage format. Complete with prices (all affordable btw), her looks take you from the beach to a Bay Area conference to Sunday Brunch. I’m always looking forward to her emails - and I know no one looks forward to emails - because it’s a constant influx of fashion inspiration. I’ll take all the help I can get.

Wanderful

Wanderful is a community of female travelers who are empowering other women with the resources and confidence to travel the world. Whether you’re looking for recommendations for places to stay in a foreign city, or a group to travel with, Wanderful has it all. Let’s face it, traveling pretty stressful. Being a woman can complicate and and a bunch of anxiety to the mix. So having a community like Wanderful means one less than thing to worry about.

How These Companies Are Celebrating Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month

According to a recent study, anti-Asian hate crimes have risen 150% since the pandemic started. But these acts of violence are not new — they are part of a much larger history of anti-Asian racism and violence in the U.S.

That makes celebrating Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month (which was named a month-long celebration in May by Congress in 1992 "to coincide with two important milestones in Asian/Pacific American history: the arrival in the United States of the first Japanese immigrants on May 7, 1843 and contributions of Chinese workers to the building of the transcontinental railroad, completed May 10, 1869") this year all the more important.

LGBTQIA+ Inclusion In The Workplace

As we celebrate Pride this month, we should also take time to reflect about the practices— or lack thereof— at our companies that help to support and empower members of the LGBTQIA+ community all year round. (LGBTQIA+ stands for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, and asexual. There are other variants of this acronym such as LGBT, LGBTQ, and LGBTQQIP2SAA, which all refer to the same community.)

From the Stonewall Uprising to the United States' Equality Act, we've come a long way, but the staggering statistics around the LGBTQIA+ community in the workplace tell us that there is still work to be done.
