This past February, PowerToFly was very proud to wrap up the panel portion of our recent Diversity Reboot 2021: The 100 Day Kickoff virtual summit by presenting our very first Diversity & Inclusion Award Show, honoring some true D&I champions across multiple industries
Back in 2020, we launched a submission process to honor select individuals who just don't talk the talk but truly walk the walk when it comes to making their companies and the world a more diverse and inclusive place. From the many submissions that we received, we chose six champions to honor.
You can watch the acceptance speeches for our honorees below or click here to watch the 45-minute awards show which included a roundtable discussion with our six DEI champions.

PowerToFly finished out 2020 with not one but TWO virtual events featuring leaders at American Express.
American Express is one of the world's most recognized brands. What goes on behind the scenes to create the premier service company and largest credit card issuer by volume? Just ask their technology organization. During our two 90-minute sessions, you'll learn about upcoming projects, gain career advice, discuss job opportunities, and discover how to get your foot in the door for a new career.
American Express is a global services company that provides consumers and businesses with exceptional access to products, insights, and experiences that enrich lives and build business success. They make it easier, safer and more rewarding for consumers and businesses to purchase the things they need and for merchants to sell their goods and services through innovative payment, travel, and expense management solutions.
We partnered with PagerDuty, a leader in digital operations management, for an invite-only virtual networking event. Hosted alongside their women sales leaders, we dove into PagerDuty's business development tactics, diversity initiatives, company culture, and (best of all) job opportunities with the sales team.
