A Look at Our Recent Networking Event in Seattle

PowerToFly was so happy to be back in Seattle for another amazing evening of women in tech on December 5th. Sponsored by MAKERS Workspaces and held at their spacious, wood-accent venue in the Pikes Place Market neighborhood, the event featured three fast-growing Seattle startups: Convoy, who is changing the way companies think about trucking; Smartsheet, a cloud-based platform that makes it easier for teams to share and collaborate; and Stripe, who help power millions of businesses in 100+ countries and across nearly every industry by providing a set of tools for building and running an internet business.


Hosted by PowerToFly's Director of Customer Success Cristina Duke, the evening included presentations, a panel discussion, an audience Q&A and of course, plenty of opportunities to network with our three featured companies while enjoying wine, sparkling water and delectable treats.

Our panel for the evening included:

  • Clara Yuan, Data Scientist at Convoy
  • Alicia Luengo, Software Engineer at Stripe
  • Carissa Cecil, Software Development Manager at Smartsheet

Topics included what qualities each companies look for when building their team, what they do to keep updated in the fast-moving world of tech, and how they've approached being the only woman at the table.

After our panel wrapped up, guests stuck around to mingle with their peers and to meet members of each of our companies. Plus, Convoy, Smartsheet and Stripe all brought plenty of branded swag and MAKERS Workspaces offered everyone a discount code so nobody left empty handed!

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.
