PowerToFly is excited to host our first-ever virtual Parents' Panel on October 29th! In this panel, we're breaking down the stigma that comes with being a "working parent" and addressing the guilt that so many of us feel during both situations - at work wishing you were home, and at home thinking about work.
Ask these experts ANYTHING during this free, virtual conversation on PowerToFly!

I have a friend whose discerning toddler refuses to eat her preschool lunch unless it's in a bento box. I get it; baby carrots are much more appealing when stacked in their little compartment than not. That made me think: when did adult lunchtime stop being fun? When did a soggy sandwich brought from home or a $12 bowl of greens, scarfed down in 10 minutes while scrolling through emails, come to define midday sustenance? Enter adult lunchables.
A Q&A with Netskope's Senior Engineering Manager May Yan
May Yan has spent most of her impressive decades-long engineering career in California, but I asked her to take me back to the beginning — to when she first moved to the Golden State from China to get her Master's Degree in Computer Engineering at Santa Clara University.
