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:
Monica Racic, Director of Production & Multimedia | The New Yorker - Editorial Website
Our experienced panel also took many questions from the audience, on everything from work-life integration to current projects. This special evening capped off with plenty of more networking time over delicious food and drinks.
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.

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."
How to stay productive and positive while working remotely
With the outbreak of COVID-19, scores of people are finding themselves working remotely for the first time. Trying to stay productive while at home with so many distractions can be overwhelming, so we asked women tech leaders what they were doing to work from home successfully. Along with getting a great pair of noise canceling headphones (game changer!), they have 10 excellent tips to help you thrive in a work-from-home environment.
I've been thinking about women's ingenuity a lot recently; after all, crises like the one we're facing now fuel innovation. They especially fuel innovation from those who are on the frontlines, in desperate need of solutions.
