A Look at PowerToFly's NYC Event with Peloton
On February 12th, PowerToFly co-hosted an evening of tech talks and discussions with revolutionary fitness innovator Peloton. (We have three PowerToFly team members who are Peloton members so we are clearly big fans).
Moderated by PowerToFly's Amy Trappey, this event was a chance to hear directly from the women tech leaders and allies who make Peloton's innovative products like the Peloton Bike, Peloton Tread and Peloton App possible.
Kicking off the evening, Peloton's Mindy Lieberman, VP of enterprise systems, greeted the crowd with warm and heartfelt introductory remarks before introducing Christine Becker, -senior software engineer at Peloton, who walked us through a behind-the-scenes tech talk. Mindy and Christine then stuck around to join a panel discussion & audience Q&A that also included Chandra Galbiati Thomas and Rosemary Arnold, both of whom are also software engineers.
Peloton is hiring. Benefits include a 401k plan with a 4% match, $100 a month towards your student loans, $100 a month towards a college savings plan, discounted bikes for you and your friends/family, and a great work-life balance.

Preparing for the Unexpected: How Maria Fava Found Her Confidence as a Bicultural, Bilingual Woman at T. Rowe Price
Born in Mexico City and raised in Guadalajara, Maria Fava never would have predicted that she'd have a career in financial services. And certainly not in Maryland.
Over two decades ago, when Maria moved to the U.S. to study psychology at the University of Texas at Arlington, she'd planned on moving back to Mexico to study law after graduation. Instead, she fell in love with an unassuming Italian-American her senior year. She married him and moved to Maryland, his home state.
When the pandemic began in spring and her friends (and fellow Carnegie Mellon master's students) started to find out that their offers for summer internships were canceled, Mai Sha held her breath.
