We have a lot to be thankful for at PowerToFly - a team that works hard from all over the globe, partners who are committed to creating diverse workforces, and an expanding community that sends us feedback we can grow from each day. We wouldn't be here without you, and we can't wait to see what the next few weeks (and years!) bring.
From our team at PowerToFly, we wish you all a safe and happy Thanksgiving!
Some Of The Feedback We're Grateful For:
"Great event... The insight shared by the panel was motivational and inspirational. The overall experience made me feel empowered... Thank you for a wonderful experience."
"Loved this event! I was nervous coming in but I was comfortable coming out and left inspired."
"Great opportunity for women in technology to network and learn from different organizations."
"Thank you so much for including me [in the event] last week. It was such an interesting night of information and great people, but I was most impressed by the positivity and genuine support to help others. I haven't found that everywhere I've worked in New York."
"I love the intimacy of the event, easy to connect with ladies thriving in various industries. Awesome conversations and women in my network."
"It was an excellent event, energetic, informative and well-organized."
"Things have been very busy professionally and personally, but I always make it a point to come back to the PowerToFly VIP program because it helps me reach my highest professional potential."
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.
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 email@example.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.
There's a lot more to building an inclusive company than just hiring more people from diverse backgrounds. So, how can you build an inclusive culture that will help you attract and retain a diverse group of employees?
