We Heard from Audible's Women Tech Leaders in Newark

Audible is changing the way we listen so it was great that we had a chance to listen to and learn from their inspiring women tech leaders on October 22nd in Newark, New Jersey. PowerToFly has had the chance to collaborate with Audible several times in the past but this was our first opportunity to partner on an event in the Audible Innovation Cathedral, a beautifully repurposed space right in the heart of Newark, just a few blocks from Audible's headquarters.

Hosted by PowerToFly's CEO and CoFounder Milena Berry, the night kicked off with opening remarks by Vincenza Pizzo, SVP Product Experience. After Vincenza welcomed our guests, Lisa Stringer Abdullah, Product Management Director to our audience on a behind-the-scenes tour of some of Audible's products via her engaging tech talk.

Lisa then joined Shruti Page, Sr. Director, UX and Bidisha Das, Director, Software Engineering for an engaging panel discussion that touched on our panelists' current projects, career journeys and even their favorite Audible books. Our speakers eagerly took questions from our capacity crowd.

Vincenza returned to wrap up our programming but the night was not over yet! Guests were encouraged to stick around and network while enjoying wonderful refreshments and our complimentary photo booth. As the evening came to a close, Audible and PowerToFly supplied shuttle buses and Lyft codes to help our attendees find a safe way home.

Here's what one attendee had to say about the event: "Had an amazing time. Very informative and very impressed with the Audible footprint in Newark!"


Audible, an Amazon company, is more than the world's leading provider of audiobooks. We're pioneers. We're inventors. We're storytellers. Since 1995, we've been authors of an industry revolution, creating a global destination for insight, information, and imagination built at the speed of the spoken word. Our people are driven by a collective passion for amplifying the human voice and enriching the cities and communities we call home. Together, we're changing the narrative on storytelling.

10 Adult Lunchables That Will Spice Up Your Work Lunch

I have a friend whose discerning toddler refuses to eat her preschool lunch unless it's in a bento box. I get it; baby carrots are much more appealing when stacked in their little compartment than not. That made me think: when did adult lunchtime stop being fun? When did a soggy sandwich brought from home or a $12 bowl of greens, scarfed down in 10 minutes while scrolling through emails, come to define midday sustenance? Enter adult lunchables.

Why It’s Better to Be Wrong Than Silent

A Q&A with Netskope's Senior Engineering Manager May Yan

May Yan has spent most of her impressive decades-long engineering career in California, but I asked her to take me back to the beginning — to when she first moved to the Golden State from China to get her Master's Degree in Computer Engineering at Santa Clara University. Were there any challenges, I wondered, as she adjusted to life and corporate culture in the U.S.?
