An Inside Look at Our Event with Wells Fargo
PowerToFly returned to Charlotte, North Carolina on April 24th to present an invite-only evening with Wells Fargo's women tech leaders and male allies.
Hosted by PowerToFly's Cristina Duke, the night kicked off with a chance for our attendees to network with their peers over some delicious refreshments and to meet members of the Wells Fargo team, who were eager to answer their questions.
The night's programming began with a keynote address and tech talk from Gabby Szasz, SVP, Global Head - Enterprise Quality Engineering. Gabby then joined a panel of Wells Fargo leaders to discuss their latest projects and career journeys. Along with Gabby, our panel included:
- Sandeep Mehta, EVP, Enterprise Platform Services, Technology
- Ligia Vilela, Head of Innovation Technology
- Yelena Makogon, Director, Head of Enterprise Counterparty Credit Risk Technology
The evening concluded with more networking and opportunities for our attendees to ask our panel follow up questions.

But after suffering through it for a few months, it's now one of her favorite things to do. "I get so much joy out of it," says Farnaz.
