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.
WW is hiring! To learn more about WW and their open positions, visit their page on PowerToFly.
