Top Women Leaders Find Inspiration and Opportunity at Power Trip 2019

After another high-powered, inspirational summit, Power Trip 2019 has come to a close. Alongside Intel, we powered Marie Claire’s annual all-female conference as part of our global commitment to celebrate female leadership. 36 hours of networking, opportunity, and exciting surprises connected leaders from coast to coast.

Dedicated to gathering powerful women in every industry to grow, learn, and share what they know, we were there powering them every step along the way.

That’s why we, alongside Intel, turned their flight to San Francisco into a fun-filled ride with surprise give-aways. Attendees were gifted the latest Latitude Chromebook Enterprise 5300 2-in-1, the most powerful Chrome Enterprise device1 designed with mobile entrepreneurs in mind. We know that choice is top of mind for today’s connected workforce, so we partnered with Google to create an intuitive, high-speed solution. The Latitude 5300 with Chrome OS quickly and seamlessly connects users to the cloud. And with longest battery life in its class, it has the power to keep going and charges up lightning fast for anyone on-the-move.

In the “Power of Community” panel featuring Intel Vice President Stephanie Hallford, Dell Product Marketing Director Kelli Hodges, and Head of Facebook App Fidji Simo, speakers discussed the significance behind designing tech as flexible as those who use it.

Hallford notes, “Together, Dell, Intel, and Google, we came to the realization that enterprise customers wanted the cloud but they also wanted security and manageability.”

Panelist Hodges also commented, “Technology gives you an access point for where you want to go with your business.”

And as business becomes more globalized, modern workers need to do their job interruption-free, from anywhere around the world.

Other panels this year focused on harnessing the power of community and juggling multiple responsibilities while still being a mom. As TV personality and panelist Ayesha Curry put it, “Women wear so many different hats”. Leveraging the right technology makes that work-life balance possible for today’s busy, digitally-connected workforce.

As a leader in technology and business, we’re proud to invest in experiences like Power Trip to help women amplify their network and become fearless leaders in their industries. And we believe powerful technology helps us get there.

Overall, the 36-hour Power Trip was a galvanizing experience, uniting luminaries from different walks of life and encouraging a more equitable business world for women. Actress and Power Trip speaker, Awkafina, summed it up: “When we’re in charge of our own stories, amazing things happen.”
