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.

Supporting Neurodiversity in the Workplace

Only 4% of companies that say they value diversity consider disabilities. Even fewer include learning and thinking differences.

30+ Ways Companies Are Celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month 2021

Founded in 1989, Hispanic Heritage Month begins on September 15 and ends October 15. The four-week span over two calendar months may seem a bit odd, but it comes with good reason, as it covers independence anniversaries of several Latin American countries, as well as key celebrations in Hispanic and Latin communities. Apart from commemorating major holidays and historic milestones, this month honors the cultures and contributions of Hispanic and Latinx Americans.

We asked some of our partner companies what they're doing to honor and celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month at work this year, and we were inspired by the wide range of responses, from highlighting the impact that employees have in local communities to hosting fireside conversations on allyship to sharing performances and instruction of famous cultural dances.ot only are these companies honoring Hispanic Heritage Month, they're finding ways to spread positive change throughout the year. Here's what they're doing, in their own words:
