Everything You Missed at Our Seattle WorkParty Tour Stop
We traveled back up north for our third WorkParty tour stop in Seattle. And, the Emerald City ladies turned out! We teamed up with Microsoft Teams to bring our guests a WorkParty like no other. As you already know, Seattle is home to some of the most rad companies, including Microsoft.
The event was hosted at WeWork Lincoln Square, and our amazing speaker, Deepica Mutyala, shared how she brought her own work party to life. Keep on reading for the tips, tricks and tools we learned about last night.
The third WorkParty tour stop featured a conversation with Deepica Mutyala, founder and CEO of Tinted. She dished on how she made the leap from her 9-5 job to follow her passion, how she went from beauty influencer to CEO, and diversity in the industry. Scroll ahead for some of the biggest takeaways from the conversation.
“To me, working at a startup was showing your value as an employee.”
“I never saw people like me on TV, and I finally said: Why not me?”
“I quit my job now knowing when my next paycheck was coming in, but I always had a Plan B in the back of my mind.”
“The saying ‘everything happens for a reason’ is basically the emphasis of my career.”
“There’s this tokenism in the beauty industry, where even if there’s representation, it’s the same person in every campaign.”
“Diversity and inclusion shouldn’t be the campaign, it should be the standard.”
Teams. We had an interactive booth, where attendees took a quick quiz to learn what kind of team member they are: the influencer, the heart, or the collaborator. It was important for our guests to learn more about Microsoft Teams and how it could help their workflow and overall business. The WorkParty team used the collaboration tool to plan the entire tour.
The ladies in attendance also sipped on some bubbly, courtesy of Chandon, while mingling with each other and as Jaclyn signed some books. There was also Crispin cider on deck, which is the perfect drink as we head into fall.
