CoFounder and President at PowerToFly
I'm the Co-Founder and President of PowerToFly, the largest platform companies use to engage women in tech, digital, sales and marketing. I love working with Fortune 50 enterprises to fast-growing startups that are adapting to be more inclusive and diverse. At PowerToFly, we've honed two distinct work streams to build diverse pipelines of underrepresented women in tech, sales, digital and marketing that are creating measurable results for talent acquisition leaders to show their C suites. From events that garner lead lists of mid to senior women in tech to media campaigns for sales roles, we're unlocking how to build truly diverse hiring pipelines. Thanks to the methods we've pioneered at PowerToFly, I was also named as one of Fast Company's 100 Most Creative People in Business. I frequently write and contribute to The New York Times, Quartz, Business Insider, Fortune and Forbes on how companies can solve their diversity hiring challenges. I also blog frequently at https://blog.powertofly.com/. Before I decided to cofound PowerToFly to tackle gender disparity, I was in media, where I started my career as the sixth employee of the Huffington Post. I left in November 2009 to take a role at The Washington Post as Executive Producer and Head of Digital News Products. Before co-founding PowerToFly, I was the Founding Managing Editor of NowThis.
