Better Jobs With Companies that Care

Nov. 22, 2017

Thanksgiving- quite literally, a time for thanks, and giving. As we sit around the table and reflect on both - it's kind of crazy to think about this past year and the strides we've made, and yet, how much farther we have to go (cue our Co-Founder and President's blog post on the inadequacies of sexual harassment training). At PowerToFly, we can't help but mention how thankful we are for YOU and the strides you've made to helping move closer to workplace equality. You've stuffed our inboxes with requests to events and webinars, filled out applications galore to positions with companies that care, and posted a plethora of comments and opinions (oh, the opinions!) in our Facebook group. In the spirit of giving - the year isn't over, and we have so many more exciting events and knowledge to share with you. We can't wait to see what the end of the year brings - so finish that turkey and we'll catch you next week!

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.

What These Companies Are Doing to Celebrate Juneteenth 2021

*Updated on June 17th, 2021 to reflect Juneteenth officially being named a Federal Holiday in the U.S.*

Juneteenth has been celebrated by African-Americans since the late 1800s, but in recent years (particularly in response to global protests over police brutality and the deaths of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and other Black Americans), there has been a surge in interest in the day that celebrates freedom.
