Data Meets Design: An Evening with BlackRock’s Female Tech Leaders
Ticket sales for this event have ended.
Join BlackRock and PowerToFly on the evening of March 27th to learn how design decisions at BlackRock are being informed by data insights – and to meet the impressive women behind this effort.
The evening will include a keynote address by BlackRock's Head of User Experience, Aladdin Product Group Scott Wilkinson, where he'll speak about his BlackRock journey and how he's building and scaling the UI/UX function at the firm. You'll also hear from a panel of four different women in technology at BlackRock – ranging from data science to UX to product management to HR, who will share their perspectives on working at the firm, and how they're each playing a role in designing for user delight. The evening will also include candid fireside chat and audience Q&A with BlackRock's Sarah Schaffer, Deputy Head of Aladdin Project Management.
Although this is a networking event (you don't have to be looking for a job to attend), BlackRock is hiring. They were named one of 2017's Top Companies by LinkedIn and one of 2018's "Top 30 World's Most Admired Companies" by Fortune. Their benefits include flexible time off, support for caring for children and elders, comprehensive health coverage, wellness initiatives and retirement savings.

Preparing for the Unexpected: How Maria Fava Found Her Confidence as a Bicultural, Bilingual Woman at T. Rowe Price
Born in Mexico City and raised in Guadalajara, Maria Fava never would have predicted that she'd have a career in financial services. And certainly not in Maryland.
Over two decades ago, when Maria moved to the U.S. to study psychology at the University of Texas at Arlington, she'd planned on moving back to Mexico to study law after graduation. Instead, she fell in love with an unassuming Italian-American her senior year. She married him and moved to Maryland, his home state.
When the pandemic began in spring and her friends (and fellow Carnegie Mellon master's students) started to find out that their offers for summer internships were canceled, Mai Sha held her breath.
