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.

Led by empathy and design thinking, I guide weekly virtual beyond-surface-level forums, which have attracted repeat attendees. My active engagements in global virtual sessions provide in-depth knowledge of virtual engagement best practices. I share these gems with leaders and coaches who actively refining their craft. I moderate, evaluate and provide unbiased insights for maximum audience-speaker connection in participatory forums.

My childhood in Hong Kong shaped my love and appreciation for cultures and perspectives. This adds value as a Qualitative Researcher, where I dig into stories to find patterns, themes and threads. This superpower serves vibrant community with individuals craving for iterative conversational spaces. My constant effort to learn from individual perspectives and belief systems regenerates my connection to humanity.
