PowerToFly Rocked Austin with Vrbo's Women Tech Leaders

PowerToFly was excited to reunite with Vrbo (formerly HomeAway) to present an evening of networking and inspiring discussions, lead by Vrbo's women tech leaders.

Held at Vrbo's Austin headquarters and hosted by PowerToFly's Cristina Duke (an Austin resident) the evening began with a chance for our invited guests to network with each other and members of the Vrbo team while also enjoying various product demos.

The evening kicked into high gear with a keynote address by Vrbo's Anita Dodia, VP, Engineering before our attendees split into breakout sessions for individuals working in Engineering, Product & Program Management, Partner Success and Business, with each discussion spearheaded by a Vrbo leader, who included Laura Howell, Sr. Director, Partner Success; Martta Howard, Director, Product Operations; and Hayley McKeon, Sr. Program Manager, Brand Marketing.

After some amazing, frank discussions, we transitioned back into networking for the rest of the night. Here's what one attendee had to say about her experience: Really a wonderful and well put together event. I enjoyed the keynote speaker as well as the breakout session. I learned quite a bit about Vrbo that is really exciting.


Vrbo, part of Expedia Group, has introduced a new way for people to travel together, pairing homeowners with families and friends looking for places to stay, with unique properties in 190 countries around the world. This is your opportunity to meet with the women tech leaders and allies who make it all possible.

Vrbo is hiring! Their amazing benefits include plenty of paid vacation, up to 20 weeks of parental leave, an employee stock purchase program, and travel reimbursements. To learn more about Vrbo and their open positions, visit their page on PowerToFly.

How To Handle Conversations on Race with Your Non-Black Coworkers

I sat in front of my CEO to discuss several complaints of racism. I was new to my role as a Culture Director. I was nervous about his reaction to the complaints. But I also knew he strongly supported developing this new department; I knew that he would take the right steps. So I was shocked when I heard him say sheepishly, "I don't know, Noelle...all of this stuff about racism. I just don't see it. I don't even see color. I'm pretty much color blind."
