Our Event with Condé Nast's Women Leaders Was a Real Page Turner
PowerToFly hosted one of its best attended events EVER on November 13th with iconic publisher Condé Nast, home to such legendary brands as Vogue, Wired, Vanity Fair, The New Yorker, GQ, and many more.
Held at Condé Nast's sleek offices inside One World Trade Center, and sporting the fantastic views that go with it, the night began with an introduction by PowerToFly's CEO Milena Berry and a video message by Condé Nast's Morgan Evans, Vice President, Engineering.
Following an insightful tech talk, the centerpiece of the evening was an open and host panel discussion featuring several women leaders at Condé Nast including:
- Danielle Virgin, Vice President, Data Products | Data Enrichment
- Chelsea Farnam, Senior Product Manager | Product Development - Consumer Marketing
- Lydia White, Design Director
- Tess Shapiro, Engineering Manager
- Monica Racic, Director of Production & Multimedia | The New Yorker - Editorial Website
Here's what one attendee had to say about the event: "Truly loved this event. I really liked how you were able to see another side of Condé Nast that not a lot of people really think about."
Condé Nast values diversity of backgrounds, views, and cultures. They celebrate people for their personal qualities, skills, and contributions. And they recognize the power our brands have to influence and shape culture, catalyze action, and help make our world a better place for all.
Condé Nast has two global employee councils focused on issues that are top of mind for them, their industry, and the world: Diversity & Inclusion and Sustainability. The councils are made up of members from all markets, functions, and levels of the company. They work closely with senior leaders across Condé Nast to champion global initiatives and guide their work, internally and externally, on these topics.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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?
How This Sales Coach Found Success—And A Career Path—at the Intersection of Tech, Construction, & Sales
A few months ago, Lily Zintak found herself at a crossroads.
She'd been working as a Sales Development Representative in construction management software company Procore Technologies' Austin, Texas office for the better part of 18 months. She'd watched the office grow from less than 200 people to more than 400—and even cut the ribbon when they opened a new floor of offices. She'd made 50-plus sales calls a day, honed an approach to prospecting and connecting with clients that worked for her, and found success. It was at this point in her career, where she had to make a tough decision.
