An Inside Look at Our Event with DocuSign

PowerToFly was excited to partner with DocuSign for an invite-only lunch event for experienced women in sales on October 3rd in San Francisco.

As they arrived, our guests were welcomed by great swag, yummy eats, and a beautiful view of the Golden Gate Bridge. The attendees also had plenty of time to network with both their peers and the DocuSign team before the afternoon kicked into high gear.


The first speaker was Joan Burke, DocuSign's Chief People Officer. For Joan, it's important that DocuSign to be the kind of place where you are doing the best work of your career. In terms advice to our attendees, Joan spoke about mentorship. She suggested that attendees seek out other individuals in their community who are doing well and encouraged them to take that person out for coffee.

Next up, we dived into a panel discussion, moderated by PowerToFly's Cristina Duke and featuring from DocuSign: Vanessa Anderson, Director, Enterprise Corporate Sales; Amber DeJong, Area Vice President, Enterprise Sales; and Drew Bruecken, Director of Outbound Sales. Amber chatted a bit about how DocuSign has good processes in place to enable personal growth and how she is focusing on working "smarter not harder", Vanessa shared she is focused on training and enablement for her team since she is new to DocuSign and Drew shared how listening is very important as a male ally.

Our panel then took questions from our audience ranging from DocuSign's sales strategies to company culture. The afternoon concluded with more opportunities to network over food and drinks before we all had to say goodbye.

The vibe in the room was electric. Here's what one attendee had to say about the event: It was a great opportunity to network with a room full of women sales leaders and get deep insights into the sales processes at DocuSign as well as the their policies on inclusion and diversity.

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 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.
