PowerToFly is thrilled that our first event of 2020 is taking us back to Atlanta for our first ever event with CNN, the world leader in online news and information. This is your opportunity to meet the women tech leaders and allies behind the world's most essential and engaging source of news.
United by a mission to inform, engage and empower the world, CNN reaches more screens than any other new source in the world. Join for a behind-the-scenes look at the game-changing work going on at CNN Digital from some of the powerhouse technologists who make it happen.
This event takes place on Wednesday, January 15th from 5:30pm to 8:00pm at the CNN Center in Atlanta.
PowerToFly traveled to the Peach State (on Peachtree Street no less!) to co-host our first event with Invesco, an independent investment management firm dedicated to delivering an investment experience that helps people get more out of life. This wasn't a lengthy trip for PowerToFly's Dionna Smith-Keels who moderated the event because she lives right in Atlanta!
Hosted at Invesco's stunning global headquarters overlooking much of Atlanta, the evening was a wonderful opportunity for women in both tech and sales (and beyond) to meet each other and hear directly from the leaders at Invesco.
The night began with talks by a pair of diversity and inclusion allies: Andrew Schlossberg, Senior Managing Director & Head of the Americas and Dave Dowsett, Global Head of Strategy & Innovation. After Andrew's warm opening remarks, Dave lead the crowd through a tech talk, demonstrating some of Invesco's innovative products.
Next up, our capacity audience (every chair was full) was treated to a panel discussion that featured a quartet of Invesco's women tech leaders. Topics ranged from current projects to career journeys to working on work-life intergration. These impressive speakers were:
- Betsy Warrick, Chief Administrative Officer of North America Institutional
- Amanda Lambert, Internal Sales Manager
- Meg Roughen, Senior Manager in Technology
- Christine Tran, Manager in the Distribution Applications
Here's what one attendee had to say about the night: "Impressed with the panelists, Invesco employees and their professionalism. Thanks Invesco, thanks PowerToFly."
