Better Jobs With Companies That Care

Jan. 24. 2018

It's almost the end of January, meaning it's finally time to reflect on our New Year's resolutions, celebrate our progress, and re-work the things that may not have been as successful as others. One of our resolutions at PowerToFly was to learn more - from our community, events, and most importantly our colleagues (who are pretty impressive, just wait). This week, we bring to you our first Excel Masterclass: Filters and Functions, taught by our very own Senior Data and Web Analyst (and mom of two), Vanina. We're all busy women, so we've removed the fluff and ensured every second of this Masterclass is full of the information you need to impress your boss this January and help you get to the next level. Is there another topic you wish we'd cover - or a session you'd like to lead yourself? Send us a message on Networks and we'll add it to the list!

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.

What These Companies Are Doing to Celebrate Juneteenth 2021

*Updated on June 17th, 2021 to reflect Juneteenth officially being named a Federal Holiday in the U.S.*

Juneteenth has been celebrated by African-Americans since the late 1800s, but in recent years (particularly in response to global protests over police brutality and the deaths of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and other Black Americans), there has been a surge in interest in the day that celebrates freedom.

Before it became an official federal holiday, many businesses shifted toward marking June 19th as an annual company holiday, creating different initiatives around the holiday and offering employees opportunities to learn, reflect, and take action toward racial equality.
