On December 11th, two of PowerToFly's own sales leaders, Cristina Duke and Amanda Bender, traveled to San Francisco to co-host a lunchtime event with New Relic, a cloud-based platform that gives developers, engineers, operations, and management a clear view of what's happening in today's complex software environments. This event highlighted New Relic's women leaders in sales, technical sales, and marketing and featured an invite-only audience of skilled professionals also in those fields. (By the way, New Relic is hiring in those fields and you can view their open roles HERE.)
The afternoon kicked off with networking over scrumptious small bites and refreshments prior to welcome remarks by Cristina, PowerToFly's Head of Sales and Customer Success. Next up, New Relic's Tracy Williams, Vice President, Global Business Partner Group delivered a brief keynotes address where she dove deeper into New Relic's culture and diversity & inclusion programs.
Next up, Tracy joined an esteemed panel of women leaders throughout New Relic for an intimate fireside chat and audience Q&A. New Relic speakers included:
- Nada DaVeiga, GVP of Solutions Consulting
- Francine Anthony, Senior Director of Global Partner Marketing
- Sara Coady, GVP, Enterprise Sales
- Tracy Kraft, VP, Marketing
- Amy Morrison, Senior Recruiter and Corporate Wellness/Fitness Leader
A great crowd!

On July 11th, PowerToFly partnered with MINDBODY on our third event together. This particular gathering for women in tech took place in in the San Francisco HQ of Frederick for MINDBODY and featured a product demo, tech talk and, of course, plenty of opportunities for our guests to network with MINDBODY leaders and each other.
The night kicked off with a spirited keynote address by Regina Wallace-Jones, Vice President, Product Operations. Regina also spoke at our event with MINDBODY in New York and she is a truly a thoughtful, inspiring presence. If you see that she's speaking at a conference near you...go!
After Regina warmed up the room, we moved into the evening's tech talk hosted by Mariane Bekker, Director of Engineering. It was a pleasure to have Mariane in the room and to hear directly from one of the skilled professionals behind MINDBODY's product.
Mariane and Regina stuck around for a panel discussion and audience Q&A where they were joined by Pallavi Pershey, Software Engineer and Emma Flock, Software Engineer. Our panel shared their own career journeys while also diving deeper into their lives at MINDBODY. After our panel wrapped up, attendees had plenty of more time to mingle with each other before closing out the night.
Getting ready for the big night!
A great night to network!

About Intuitive: Intuitive was founded in 1995 to create innovative, robotic-assisted systems that help empower doctors and hospitals to make surgery less invasive than an open approach. Since da Vinci® became one of the first robotic-assisted systems cleared by the FDA for general laparoscopic surgery, it's taken robotic-assisted surgery from "science fiction" to reality.

PowerToFly was back in our "home away from home" of San Francisco (as a remote company, everywhere is kind of home) to present our fourth (!!!) event with a truly extraordinary company: Checkr.
If you're not familiar with Checkr, they're the leading background check company using artificial intelligence and machine learning to make hiring more inclusive and efficient. They work with an impressive roster of clients and are continuing to grow. If you're curious, you should check out their website and careers page.
Our September 5th event was hosted by PowerToFly's Jamie Lipiner. Here's what one attendee had to say about the event: "I didn't know about Checkr before this event. I love the panel of speakers. They came across as genuine and thoughtful people—the kind I would enjoy knowing."
The evening included an insightful tech talk by Checkr's Michelle Berry, Software Engineer entitled Zero message loss: Kafka tooling at Checkr. After her tech talk, Michelle joined a panel of Checkr's women tech leaders for a lively discussion and audience Q&A session. Our panelists included:
- Adrienne Pajer, Engineering Manager
- Holly Bowen, Engineer
- Cheryl Mak, Data Analyst
- Elena Horner, Product Manager
A full house at our event with Checkr!
