We Got Technical with WeWork's Women Leaders

PowerToFly was proud to partner with WeWork to host a special night of networking and discussions, highlighting their women tech leaders, on August 1st in San Francisco.

As someone who formerly had an office at a WeWork in New York, it's been enlightening over the last few months of our collaboration to learn not just more about the extensive community that WeWork has built but also how they are using technology to revolutionize the way we approach productivity and the workplace as a whole. This event was a fantastic opportunity for the women leaders behind some of WeWork's tech products to dive deeper into both their current projects and career journeys before an audience of skilled tech professionals.

Hosted by PowerToFly's Jamie Lipiner, the night kicked off with a welcome address and product demo by Veena Basavaraj, Senior Manager Engineering and Tiffany Jung, Senior Product Manager, providing both an overview of WeWork and a deeper dive into their innovative product.

The centerpiece of the evening was then an honest and organic panel discussion featuring several of WeWork's women leaders including Thushara Paul, Senior Manager Engineering; Ramya Amancharla, Director of Product; Sri Modukuru, Senior Manager Engineering; Jiaona Zhang, Director of Product; and Mimi Hui, Senior Director, Product. Following a few discussion topics from Jamie, we opened the floor to questions from the audience.

The evening concluded with ample time for our attendees to network with both the WeWork team, including hiring mangers, as well as with their peers over food and drinks.

Flexport and PowerToFly Discussed "Tech for Good" in San Francisco

On July 24th, PowerToFly partnered with Flexport, the innovative company combining advanced technology and data analytics, logistics infrastructure, and supply chain expertise, to present a very intimate, invite only evening for senior women tech leaders in San Francisco.

Held at the lovely Monroe, this mini-retreat focused on how tech can be used for the greater good while also allowing for both our invited guests and Flexport speakers to share their own personal career journeys, discuss the impact of diversity and inclusion on tech and to network with likeminded skilled tech professionals.

After ample networking time over food and drinks, PowerToFly CoFounder Milena Berry kicked off the night by introducing Susy Schöeneberg, Head of Flexport.Org, to deliver the night's opening remarks, sharing how Flexport is making global trade easier for everyone. Then, our attendees formed smaller breakout sessions, each lead by a Flexport leader that, in addition to Susy, included Elaine Teoh, VP Engineering, Experiences; Madison Bell, Senior Product Operations Manager; Becca Ling, Product Design Manager; and Geoff Smalling, Vice President, Product Management; to share what products and companies they think are examples "tech for good".

As our brainstorming sessions wrapped up, the whole room came together to share their collected findings and continue the conversation as a larger group. This insightful evening wrapped up with plenty of more opportunities for our guests to network before calling it a night.
