An Inside Look at Our Event with S&P Global

PowerToFly was thrilled to partner with S&P Global to present an intimate evening of learning and networking in Charlottesville, Virginia on November 7th. PowerToFly strives to produce events that are equal parts informational and inspirational and this event was no exception as the women who attended got first hand insights and career advice from some of the best and brightest in tech in S&P Global's Charlottesville office.


S&P Global is exactly that, global. They are hiring in locations as diverse as the Philippines, Pakistan, India, United Kingdom, Singapore, and throughout the United States. Whenever we speak with an S&P Global employee, we instantly sense just how much she loves working for this company. That sentiment was on full display at our Charlottesville event.

Our event began with a chance for our guests to network a bit and of course, enjoy some delicious small bites. PowerToFly's Caroline Turner officially kicked off the event by welcoming our attendees before turning the microphone over to to the evening's keynote speaker, Nick Cafferillo, S&P Global's Chief Technology Officer & Chief Operating Officer for S&P Global Market Intelligence.

Next up, Caroline segued us into the heart of the evening: a panel discussion featuring a diverse segment of S&P Global's women tech leaders. Our amazing leadership panel shared workplace advice, broke down their own personal career journeys, and discussed how they maintain a strong work-life integration. The distinguished panel for this event included:

  • Aleks Hagy - Sr. Director, Project Management/Business Analysis
  • Meredith Polson - Sr. Business Analyst
  • Kerry Guerrero - Sr. Data Scientist
  • Jodi Barrington - Sr. Manager, Software Development
  • Autumn Wade - Director, IT Project Management

After taking questions from the audience, our panel stuck around to continue to network with our attendees, answering additional questions on everything from their current projects to the culture at S&P Global. Soon it was time for our guests to depart into the crisp fall night but the whole team at PowerToFly can't wait to continue our journey with S&P Global.

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.

How Embracing What She Doesn’t Know Led Autodesk’s Arezoo Riahi to a Fulfilling Career in DEI

Arezoo Riahi isn't a big fan of the "fake it till you make it" approach. She'd rather ask for the help she needs and learn from it.

Autodesk's Director of Diversity and Belonging joined the design software company from the nonprofit world after a long career in connecting people from different cultures. While her work had been deeply rooted in DEI values, there were certain parts of the strategy-building aspects to her new role that she wasn't sure about.

"If you know it, show up like you know it. If you don't know it, you shouldn't fake it. And Autodesk didn't shame me for not knowing everything. They helped me, and the entire team, by providing the resources that we needed, bringing in outside expertise to help teach us when we were in new territory," says Arezoo, who has been at Autodesk for three years now, during which she's been promoted twice into her current role.

We sat down with Arezoo to hear more about her path into DEI work, what she thinks the future of that work must include, and what advice she has for women looking to build fulfilling careers, from knowing what you don't know and beyond.

How Being an Open Member of the LGBTQIA+ Community Has Helped Procore’s Alex Zinik Overcome Imposter Syndrome at Work

Alex Zinik wasn't surprised that she started her career in education—she decided she would become a teacher when she was just in third grade.

She was surprised while working as a paraeducator in the school system and preparing to become a special education teacher, she discovered that it didn't feel quite right. "I didn't know if that's what I really wanted to do," she recalls.

So a friend suggested she take a job during her off summers at construction software company Procore. She thought this would be the perfect opportunity to try out this new challenge, and if she needed to, she could go back to the school district once the summer was over.

"Five summers later, I'm still here!" she says, smiling. "And I see myself here for many more years. I just fell in love with the company, the culture, and with the career growth opportunities I was presented with."

As part of our Pride month celebrations, Alex, currently the Senior Executive Assistant to the CEO at Procore, sat down with us to share how a common fear—the fear of being found out—underlay the imposter syndrome she felt when pivoting to an industry in which she lacked experience, and the anxiety she often felt before coming out to her friends and family about her sexuality.

Read on for her insight on overcoming negative thought patterns, being yourself, and paying it forward.
