A Look Back at Our Evening with the Co-Founder of Casper
On July 31st, PowerToFly partnered with Casper to present a sold out, invite-only evening for women in digital and engineering. The event, which took place at Casper's beautiful NYC headquarters, kicked off with a keynote address by the company's co-founder and Chief Technology Officer Gabriel Flateman and included a panel discussion featuring two of Casper's women tech leaders.
Here is a brief look at the evening:
- Before the event officially kicked off, guests had a chance to network with the Casper team and their peers over some delicious food and drinks.
- PowerToFly CEO Milena Berry officially welcomed our attendees and introduced Gabriel Flateman, Co-Founder and Chief Technology Officer of Casper, who delivered a brief keynote address.
- The centerpiece of the evening was a panel discussion featuring three of Casper's leaders: Eleanor Morgan, SVP Experience; Hairong Crigler, SVP Marketing Analytics and Data Science; and Kyle Rush, VP Engineering.
- After answering some of Milena's questions about each of their career journeys and lives at Casper, we opened the floor to questions from our audience.
- The night concluded with more opportunity for our attendees to network with the Casper team, including our panelists.
