Women in Tech Share Their Experiences Working at WW (Formerly Weight Watchers)
Back on March 14th, PowerToFly partnered with WW (formerly Weight Watchers) to present an evening of tech talks and discussions lead by their women tech leaders who are building the future of wellness.
Hosted by PowerToFly's CoFounder & CEO Milena Berry, the evening kicked off with a welcome address by WW's CTO Michael Lysaght, who then stuck around to answer questions during our networking session. Michel then passed the mic to Kayley Seder, Manager, Agile Project Management who dived a bit deeper into WW's platform and latest tools.
Next, Milena moderated a panel discussion featuring four of WW's women tech leaders who shared their own career journeys, spoke about the work that WW is doing in the Android and conversational AI fields and about the employee resource groups that WW offers to help their women engineers take their careers to the next level. Our panel included:
Veronica Brown, Scrum Master
Laure Price, Manager, Marketing Technology
Ifeoma Okereke, Software Engineer
Chao Dong, Software Engineer
After our panel discussion, audience members had a chance to ask their own questions before we moved back into networking, with more chances to enjoy the wonderful food and drinks that WW provided.
While many bosses say they're open to ideas and suggestions, what they do when you actually share a great idea with them is another reality entirely. (Ever had a boss nod along excitedly and promise to look into your idea, only for you to realize, months later, that nothing's happened? Exactly.)
How do you do your taxes? (Aside from begrudgingly, that is.) If you're one of the millions of Americans who files online, you may have used one of the projects that Yi Ng, Principal Product Manager at Intuit, has developed over her eight years at the global financial platform company known for products like TurboTax, QuickBooks, and Mint.
