A Look at Our Event with Slack in San Francisco

As a completely remote company, PowerToFly relies on Slack everyday to make our work possible. More than any other platform, including email, our global team communicates via Slack. The PowerToFly team is global, stretching from India to Russia to Argentina to the United States. It's amazing to think that we can utilize one tool to not only chat but to send documents, brainstorm and even share wedding photos.

That is why PowerToFly was beyond thrilled to partner with Slack for our second networking event for women in sales. After giving New York some love in September, we relocated to Slack's San Francisco office to host an evening of panel discussions and networking featuring some of Slack's women sales leaders and male allies.


One thing that made this even especially meaningful is that one of our panelists was Kylie Maddex. While Kylie currently works as Large Enterprise Account Executive, she previously served as PowerToFly's first ever Head of Sales. Kylie is amazing and we at PowerToFly love to see our alumni go off and push their careers to the next level.

Joining Kylie on the panel were Maggie Hott, Manager, Mid-Market Sales; Renu Gupta, Large Enterprise Sales Leader; Kelly Bray, Director, Customer Success Programs & Retention Strategy; and Craig Nile, Head of Enterprise Sales, North America. Moderated by PowerToFly's Director of Customer Success Cristina Duke, our panelists discussed their own career journeys, what drew them to Slack, the lessons they learned working for large enterprises and other startups and how they maintain work-life integration.

Our capacity crowd of over 120 attendees also had a chance to ask our accomplished panel questions of their own. After an enlightening audience Q&A, we moved back into networking so that our guests had plenty of time to ask follow-up questions on their own time. Slack even gifted our attendees face masks which were a big hit (and went quickly).

We love getting to meet the people that make a product that we love and we can't wait to continue our partnership with Slack. Visit Slack's page on PowerToFly to learn more about their open roles.

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.

Diversity and Inclusion Calendar 2021

Inclusive leaders are ones who make their team feel like they belong, like they're valued, and like their whole self is seen and appreciated at work. Being cognizant of different holidays and celebrations can go a long way in doing that.

Perhaps your company chooses to highlight the diversity of your employees by collectively celebrating different festive days. Or maybe you're encouraging employees to use floating paid holidays to mark important days with their families and friends. Either way, a diversity awareness calendar for 2021 can go a long way in helping you meet your goals. Avoid insensitive missteps by checking against these 2021 diversity holidays before scheduling all-hands meetings or company parties.
