A Look Back at Our Event with Checkr's Women Sales Leaders in Denver
On August 14th, PowerToFly was super stoked to present our first ever event in the great city of Denver. This event was also our third event with the groundbreaking company Checkr, the team that's revolutionizing the hiring process by streamlining background checks.
Hosted by PowerToFly Senior Diversity & Inclusion Executive (and Denver resident) Jamie Lipiner, the night included plenty of opportunities for Denver-based sales professionals to network over food and drinks while also enjoying a product demo and in-depth panel discussion.
Our impressive panel of Checkr women leaders, who were more than willing to answer our audience's questions, whether those queries were about our speakers' sales strategies or career journeys, included:
- Kristen Faris - Vice President, Industry Strategy
- Elizabeth Campos - Mid Market Account Executive
- Margie Lee-Johnson - Vice President, People
- Erin Bates - Senior Manager, Mid Market Sales
Checkr (who is hiring) is making waves with their innovative hiring process! They're a platform that makes it easy for thousands of customers to hire millions of people every year. Today, only five years after Checkr started, the company is running one million background checks per month for more than 10,000 customers, allowing them to create a more efficient hiring process. Their impressive list of clients include Lyft, Grubhub and Zillow.

Brittany Boardman went to her first interview with Stack Overflow without expecting much.
"I'm not technical, I'm not an engineer. And I wasn't necessarily looking [for a new job]. But Stack just blew me away," says Brittany of her first exposure to the company behind the world's largest and most trusted software developer and technologist community. "The people I met that day seemed like they genuinely liked coming to work. There was this cohesive belief in what the company was doing. I was converted pretty quickly after that interview—Stack was somewhere I wanted to join."
