We Had a Blast in Atlanta with Invesco's Women Leaders + Allies

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:

Our panelists stuck around to answer questions, both during the formal audience Q&A and during the hour of additional networking that closed out this special evening.

Here's what one attendee had to say about the night: "Impressed with the panelists, Invesco employees and their professionalism. Thanks Invesco, thanks PowerToFly."


Invesco is committed to improving diversity of all types, at all levels, and in all functions across their global business which includes 8,000 employees with an on-the-ground presence in 25 countries.
