A Night for Sales and Operations Professionals featuring Flexport's Women Leaders

After partnering with Flexport, the innovative company that's combining advanced technology and data analytics, logistics infrastructure, and supply chain expertise to revolutionizing global trade, we were super excited to reunite for a new event, this time in New York City.

This intimate evening for skilled professionals working in sales and operations took place on September 10th at Flexport's inviting New York office and was hosted by PowerToFly CEO Milena Berry. As our guests arrived, they had a chance to network with their peers and members of the Flexport team while enjoying complimentary (and delicious!) food and refreshments.


Things kicked off with a warm keynote address by Flexport's Kara Shapiro, Senior Manager of Accounts, who then joined our informative panel of Flexport women leaders that also included Thea Dolan, Global Operations Manager; Maryana Kessel, Senior Global Account Executive; and Jessica Tissera, Sales Development Manager. After answering some questions from Milena, our four speakers dedicated the rest of their time to taking questions from the audience.

Before the night moved back into networking, our guests received a special treat. Using their gifted Flexport notebooks and pens, Program Manager Bri Lopez walked our attendees through an insightful activity about "crafting your job", geared at identifying the tasks (and teammates) that both give and detract from your work energy. (By the way, if you'd like a copy of Bri's presentation, please email events@powertofly.com)

Here's what one attendee had to say about the event: "Thank you and PowerToFly for organizing such a welcoming and informative event at Flexport tonight. I came away feeling energized and enthusiastic about my search for my next role. It is uplifting to see first hand that companies do exist where mind-blowing, technology-enabled customer service, collaboration and problem solving are core values that are lived by the leaders and the teams every day!"

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.

Only 4% of companies that say they value diversity consider disabilities. Even fewer include learning and thinking differences.

30+ Ways Companies Are Celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month 2021

Founded in 1989, Hispanic Heritage Month begins on September 15 and ends October 15. The four-week span over two calendar months may seem a bit odd, but it comes with good reason, as it covers independence anniversaries of several Latin American countries, as well as key celebrations in Hispanic and Latin communities. Apart from commemorating major holidays and historic milestones, this month honors the cultures and contributions of Hispanic and Latinx Americans.

We asked some of our partner companies what they're doing to honor and celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month at work this year, and we were inspired by the wide range of responses, from highlighting the impact that employees have in local communities to hosting fireside conversations on allyship to sharing performances and instruction of famous cultural dances.ot only are these companies honoring Hispanic Heritage Month, they're finding ways to spread positive change throughout the year.
