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.

DEI vs. DEIB: Why belonging is critical to your DEI strategy

In recruitment and retention circles, belonging is a hot topic. We’ve talked about diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) for years. Now, studies stress how top organizations like NASA that have added belonging to their DEI strategies are creating the most connectedness among employees – especially those who previously felt left out or ignored. In DEI consulting, terms like “belonging” and even “DEI” itself can suffer from definition creep or ambiguity. Let’s pin down a specific definition of belonging and define its critical place in your DEI — or DEIB — strategy.

What does belonging mean in DEI?

Belonging as a DEI definition is a purposeful, design-led workplace experience. It doesn’t just happen. It needs to be fostered. We define belonging as: A person’s perception of acceptance within a given group, including a work environment. Fostering belonging means that people of all backgrounds get a seat at the table and feel heard, seen, and recognized for their contributions.
