We Learned a TON from Microsoft's Women Leaders
On September 25th PowerToFly's Director of Customer Success Cristina Duke and Talent Advocate Megan Alexander flew to Bellevue in Washington to host a special evening with the women business & technology leaders from the Microsoft Azure AI Platform organization.
Microsoft speakers at the event included:
- Ria Kapila, Chief of Staff
- Aniththa Umamahesan, Program Manager
- Julie Stevenson, Data Scientist
- Sindhura Bandhakavi, Principal Software Engineering Manager
- Sophia Liu, Data Scientist
- Vinitra Swamy, Software Engineer
- After this event with Microsoft I learned that work life balance really exists at this company
- It was a great event! There is a clear need for networking events like this. I learned a lot about Azure team and felt like I had a great opportunity to connect with the members of the team and Microsoft recruiters in general. My favorite part was a panel format with Q&A.
- Extremely well organized right from Parking, to providing nametags, notebooks, and a wide selection of Hors d'oeuvres.

Born in Mexico City and raised in Guadalajara, Maria Fava never would have predicted that she'd have a career in financial services. And certainly not in Maryland.
Over two decades ago, when Maria moved to the U.S. to study psychology at the University of Texas at Arlington, she'd planned on moving back to Mexico to study law after graduation. Instead, she fell in love with an unassuming Italian-American her senior year. She married him and moved to Maryland, his home state.
