A Look at Our Event with PagerDuty's Women Leaders

PowerToFly was thrilled to host our first event in Atlanta on June 5th and we couldn't have chosen a better partner than PagerDuty, a cloud computing platform that integrates machine data & human intelligence to improve visibility & agility across organizations including one third of the Fortune 500!

Here's what one attendee had to say about the event and PagerDuty: "I love how passionate people are working here and how much they value women in tech."

Held at the Metro Atlanta Chamber of Commerce and hosted by PowerToFly's Dionna Smith, this event was a great opportunity for skilled tech professionals to network with one another while learning about PagerDuty's latest projects.

The evening began with a keynote address by Wendy Foster, Director, Engineering, Data Science & Analytics, who shared her own career journey and spoke about life at PagerDuty.

Next up, our attendees were in for a real treat as PagerDuty's Arup Chakrabarti, Director, Infrastructure engaged in a frank fireside chat with one of PagerDuty's customers, in this case Qiana Phillips, Web Engineering Manager from Delta.

The centerpiece of the evening was an in-depth panel discussion featuring several of PagerDuty's women tech leaders and male allies followed by a great audience Q&A. The PagerDuty panelists included:

The evening wrapped up with more networking as attendees got to leave with some sweet PagerDuty swag.

PagerDuty is hiring! Their new parental leave policy is one of the most generous in the tech industry. PagerDuty set their paid U.S. parental leave allowance to 22 weeks with total job security, compared to an estimated industry average of 13-14 weeks.

The Two Causes of Conflict Within a Team: And How to Resolve Them

(With specific tips for remote teams!)

Teams have conflict. It happens. Whether it's disagreeing with your manager's feedback, going head-to-head with a coworker for a promotion, or feeling supreme levels of annoyance at the department head who consistently claims credit for work he didn't do, all of us have gotten into it at some point on the job. (One of my favorite personal conflicts was when a woman who worked for me refused to use our publication's style guide when communicating on behalf of the business. Yes, I once found myself screaming in a newsroom about the need to use size-16 Tahoma in marketing materials rather than size-12 Times New Roman. But I promise I'm better at dealing with conflict now.)
