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!
SendGrid is making great strides to build a more inclusive environment where everyone can belong, and their numbers show their efforts are making a difference! Since 2014 they've seen a 22% increase in female employees, with 32% of all leadership jobs held by women (up from 27% in 2015). Their values of being happy, hungry, humble and honest are at the core of everything they do and when they apply these to their efforts for diversity and inclusion, they define their culture.

Crises can bring out the best in us. It can be hard to believe that when headlines are crowded with toilet paper hoarders or raucous spring breakers under the impression that they're invincible, but it's true. A paper by the University of Delaware's Disaster Research Center found that assumptions about people acting in their own best interest during a crisis are "fundamentally incorrect" and that "human beings…typically rise to the daunting challenges that disasters pose."
