We Learned About the Many Innovations at Intuitive
PowerToFly is lucky enough to partner with some truly amazing companies but sometimes we work with an organization that is not only changing but truly saving people's lives. One such company is Intuitive, maker of the da Vinci surgical system. Intuitive truly is the pioneer and a global leader in robotic-assisted, minimally invasive care and it was fantastic to hear directly from the women tech leaders and allies who make this all possible.
Hosted by PowerToFly's Amanda Bender, our impressive lineup of speakers from Intuitive included:
Catherine delivered the evening's keynote address, entitled "Surgery's Past, Present & Robotic Future" and guests had a chance to sign up for a future demo to see the groundbreaking robot in person. Our attendees, also had a chance to take advantage of a fun photo booth while they networked over refreshments.
Intuitive was founded in 1995 to create innovative, robotic-assisted systems that help empower doctors and hospitals to make surgery less invasive than an open approach. Since da Vinci® became one of the first robotic-assisted systems cleared by the FDA for general laparoscopic surgery, it's taken robotic-assisted surgery from "science fiction" to reality.

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.
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.?
It's pretty common in your 20s and 30s to feel like you're treading water financially – dealing with the immediate bills and expenses and not thinking too far beyond the next year or two. But this is the ideal time to think about the financial objectives you want to achieve. The best rewards don't come without risks, and there's no better time to start setting goals and taking chances.
In an interview, it's hard to anticipate what questions an interviewer will ask, but there is one that they are guaranteed to ask every single time (and it may be the most important question of the interview): "Do you have any questions for me?"
