Women Think Next: An Evening of Inspiration and Networking at Microsoft

If you are a Seattle-based tech professional who is interested in attending this event, please email us at events@powertofly.com to be considered for an invitation.

Microsoft and PowerToFly would love to invite you to Women Think Next on Thursday, April 25, 2019. Join us for an evening of inspiring discussions and networking with Microsoft's tech & business leaders.


Women Think Next is an annual networking event for senior professional women. It began in Israel and India in 2008 and has now become a truly global event. Dozens of external senior women attend every year, representing different positions in the booming tech industry and bringing together professionals from Advertising, Marketing, Sales, Finance, Engineering, IT, Services, Research, Business Development and more.

This year's theme is Leadership, Authenticity, and Finding Our Voices.

We have all struggled with feelings of self-doubt. Impostor syndrome is very real for many of us, and it can be a serious obstacle in our journeys to becoming authentic leaders. At this year's Women Think Next event, you will hear from leaders who have faced their fear head on and are ready to share their real-world experiences with us. They will provide their strategies for coping with self-doubt, pushing outside of our comfort zones, finding our authentic voices, and building credibility and confidence on our way to becoming effective and genuine leaders.
