A Look at Our Recent Event with Checkr

On September 12th, PowerToFly partnered with the Checkr team for an invite-only evening for women engineers.

Checkr is changing the way companies perform background checks. The event with PowerToFly was held at Checkr's gorgeous office in San Francisco's financial district where attendees had a chance to hear from a panel of Checkr's Engineering Managers and to network with Checkr's leaders, including Co-Founder & CTO Jonathan Perichon.

The evening's panelists included Checkr Engineering Managers Ritu Vincent, Anusha Rajan, Ben Jacobson and Eric Psalmond, who also delivered the evening's welcome address.


Using Checkr's advanced background check technology, companies of all sizes can better understand the dynamics of the changing workforce, bring transparency and fairness to their hiring, and ultimately build a better future for workers. Today, only four years after Checkr started, the company is running one million background checks per month for more than 10,000 customers who they've helped hire millions of people for.

How These Companies Are Celebrating Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month

According to a recent study, anti-Asian hate crimes have risen 150% since the pandemic started. But these acts of violence are not new — they are part of a much larger history of anti-Asian racism and violence in the U.S.

That makes celebrating Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month (which was named a month-long celebration in May by Congress in 1992 "to coincide with two important milestones in Asian/Pacific American history: the arrival in the United States of the first Japanese immigrants on May 7, 1843 and contributions of Chinese workers to the building of the transcontinental railroad, completed May 10, 1869") this year all the more important.
