Women Think Next: An Evening of Inspiration and Networking at Microsoft
Microsoft and PowerToFly would love to invite you to Women Think Next on Thursday, April 25, 2019. Join us for an evening of inspiring discussions and networking with Microsoft's tech & business leaders.
Women Think Next is an annual networking event for senior professional women. It began in Israel and India in 2008 and has now become a truly global event. Dozens of external senior women attend every year, representing different positions in the booming tech industry and bringing together professionals from Advertising, Marketing, Sales, Finance, Engineering, IT, Services, Research, Business Development and more.
This year's theme is Leadership, Authenticity, and Finding Our Voices.
We have all struggled with feelings of self-doubt. Impostor syndrome is very real for many of us, and it can be a serious obstacle in our journeys to becoming authentic leaders. At this year's Women Think Next event, you will hear from leaders who have faced their fear head on and are ready to share their real-world experiences with us. They will provide their strategies for coping with self-doubt, pushing outside of our comfort zones, finding our authentic voices, and building credibility and confidence on our way to becoming effective and genuine leaders.

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.

Preparing for the Unexpected: How Maria Fava Found Her Confidence as a Bicultural, Bilingual Woman at T. Rowe Price
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.
When the pandemic began in spring and her friends (and fellow Carnegie Mellon master's students) started to find out that their offers for summer internships were canceled, Mai Sha held her breath.
