Flexport and PowerToFly Discussed "Tech for Good" in San Francisco

On July 24th, PowerToFly partnered with Flexport, the innovative company combining advanced technology and data analytics, logistics infrastructure, and supply chain expertise, to present a very intimate, invite only evening for senior women tech leaders in San Francisco.

Held at the lovely Monroe, this mini-retreat focused on how tech can be used for the greater good while also allowing for both our invited guests and Flexport speakers to share their own personal career journeys, discuss the impact of diversity and inclusion on tech and to network with likeminded skilled tech professionals.

After ample networking time over food and drinks, PowerToFly CoFounder Milena Berry kicked off the night by introducing Susy Schöeneberg, Head of Flexport.Org, to deliver the night's opening remarks, sharing how Flexport is making global trade easier for everyone. Then, our attendees formed smaller breakout sessions, each lead by a Flexport leader that, in addition to Susy, included Elaine Teoh, VP Engineering, Experiences; Madison Bell, Senior Product Operations Manager; Becca Ling, Product Design Manager; and Geoff Smalling, Vice President, Product Management; to share what products and companies they think are examples "tech for good".

As our brainstorming sessions wrapped up, the whole room came together to share their collected findings and continue the conversation as a larger group. This insightful evening wrapped up with plenty of more opportunities for our guests to network before calling it a night.


Flexport believes global trade can move the human race forward. That's why it's their mission to make global trade easier for everyone through their pioneering Operating System for Global trade. Currently, they connect almost 10,000 clients and suppliers across 109 countries, including established global brands like Georgia-Pacific as well as emerging innovators like Sonos.
