Dow Jones Named In 2018 Working Mother Best Companies List

Below is an article originally written by Mark Musgrave, the Chief People Officer at PowerToFly Partner Dow Jones, and published on September 26, 2018. Go to Dow Jones' page on PowerToFly to see their open positions and learn more.

A note from Mark Musgrave:

Dear All,

I am proud to share that for the third year in a row, Working Mother Magazine has placed Dow Jones on their list of Top 100 Best U.S. companies for working mothers. At Dow Jones our goal is to help our people reach their full potential, by cultivating an environment where they feel comfortable bringing their whole selves to work.

Being recognized as an employer of choice for working mothers is the result of our continued efforts to provide employees with an ever improving approach to work-life balance. Over the course of the past year, we've enhanced our paid parental leave to 20 weeks for primary caregivers around the globe, hosted our inaugural award-winning women's leadership initiative, IGNITE and celebrated the 20th anniversary of the Dow Jones Family Center in Princeton.

As we work to map our our next steps, we'll be incorporating feedback from Smita Pillai's Listening Tour. As our first Chief Diversity & Inclusion Officer, Smita has been traveling to numerous offices across the globe to learn what we do well and where we can improve in our efforts to cultivate a culturally diverse and inclusive working environment for all employees.

We still have more work to do, but attaining this distinction as a great organization for working mothers is something I am very proud of – it shows that we are on the right path. I'd like to share a few thoughts from other members of the Executive Leadership team on this accomplishment:

Christina Van Tassell, Chief Financial Officer
"I am proud to be part of an organization that encourages individuals to discover their path to happiness, both at home and in the workplace. As a working mom, I personally feel supported so that I may continue to thrive in a balanced way."

Matt Murray, WSJ Editor-in-Chief
"Journalism can be especially demanding and tough on families given the pace of news and relentlessness of deadlines. Given the competitive nature of the job, many people feel an unstated pressure to sacrifice their personal lives to demonstrate their commitment. It's important to have policies that encourage and nurture balance, and help our journalists find fulfillment both on the job and off."

Smita Pillai, Chief Diversity & Inclusion Officer
"As I have traveled across the globe listening to our colleagues, one thing is clear – we are proud of our company and our brand. Our world class benefits and policies are inclusive and progressive. This recognition from Working Mother Magazine is a testament to our commitment to diversity and inclusion of all our global employees."

I am proud to be a part of an organization such as Dow Jones, which strives to provide employees with programs and services that are meaningful and significant. I look forward to sharing more about new programs soon.

Best,

Mark

What to Write in a Farewell Card to a Leaving Coworker: Quotes and Examples

For the boss you loved, the coworker you hated, and everyone in between

Two things are inevitable when someone leaves your team at work: there will be an abundance of sweet treats (I'm partial to those giant cookie cakes from the mall) and there will be a card passed around for everyone to scrawl the professional version of sweet nothings in. Depending on the "importance" of the person, you may get the bonus activities of farewell gifts and/or an all-team champagne toast.

A Night of Networking with Peloton’s Women Tech Leaders

If you are a New York based tech professional and you'd like to attend this event, please email your name and LinkedIn URL to events@powertofly.com.

Whether you are a software engineer, fitness enthusiast or both, you won't want to miss PowerToFly's evening of product demos and networking with the women tech leaders and allies at Peloton.

Founded in 2012, Peloton brought top talent together in its Silicon Alley headquarters to create a new concept in fitness. In their words, "We loved cycling but had a hard time finding a workout that consistently fit our schedules, and our at-home workouts never felt quite up to par. So, we set out to create a world-class indoor cycling studio experience on your time, and in the comfort of your own home."

This event is your chance to hear directly from the women tech leaders and allies who make their revolutionary products like the Peloton Bike, Peloton Tread and Peloton App possible. We'll be devoting a large portion of the event to taking your questions and I know the Peloton team wants to hear from you!

The unique evening will take place on Wednesday, February 12th from 6pm to 8:30pm at 125 W 25th Street.

How This Sales Coach Found Success—And A Career Path—at the Intersection of Tech, Construction, & Sales

A few months ago, Lily Zintak found herself at a crossroads.

She'd been working as a Sales Development Representative in construction management software company Procore Technologies' Austin, Texas office for the better part of 18 months. She'd watched the office grow from less than 200 people to more than 400—and even cut the ribbon when they opened a new floor of offices. She'd made 50-plus sales calls a day, honed an approach to prospecting and connecting with clients that worked for her, and found success. It was at this point in her career, where she had to make a tough decision.
