This week I’m focusing on an App that also wants to empower women in the field of Tech: Power to Fly. Power to Fly is actually more of a movement but since they offer an App I wanted to shine on light on the incredible work Power to fly has done for women. According to their website:
“PowerToFly was launched by Milena Berry and Katharine Zaleski in 2014 to connect Fortune 500 companies and fast growing startups with women who are looking to work for companies that value gender diversity and inclusion. PowerToFly is building the platform to propel diversity recruiting and hiring. Our optimized search and sourcing tools, targeted job promotions, and high visibility employer branding services reduce the time to hire hard to reach talent pools of underrepresented female engineers at a centralized and lower cost. Through the platform companies gain full access to actively and passively build a pipeline of vetted women in tech and across digital.
Companies struggle to build diversity across their organizations and most particularly in technical roles. Countless studies have shown that diverse teams perform better than homogenous ones, but without focused solutions, gender parity throughout the corporate ladder won’t be achieved for 100 years.”
The App allows you to take advantage of their amazing website on a mobile platform. It’s easy to join by signing up with your Twitter, Facebook or Linkedin accounts and then you can access all of the great content and search for a job while on the go.
So far, nearly 1,000 companies have posted job listings on Power to Fly including Hearst, Buzzfeed and the Washington Post, for positions in technology, marketing, sales and customer service. And the website is growing so quickly, Power to Fly itself, plans to hire another 60 workers over the next six months.
You go, Girls!
