We Heard from Audible's Women Tech Leaders in Newark

Audible is changing the way we listen and 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 inside the Audible Innovation Cathedral, a beautifully repurposed space right in the heart of Newark, and part of the Audible campus headquarters.

Co-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 took 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 inspiring panel discussion that touched on our panelists' current projects, career journeys and even their favorite Audible listens. Our speakers eagerly took questions from our crowd, which was at full capacity that evening!

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!"

Ah, the dreaded PIP.

Performance improvement plans (PIPs) can feel scary. They have a (not entirely unearned) reputation for being the first step on the road to an eventual firing. And sometimes managers do implement PIPs solely to appease HR by ensuring that they made every last effort to make a given employee successful before terminating that employee.
