Power Pairing: Learning from Leaders Featuring Monica M. Brown

Power Pairing Blog Post

Throughout the 2021 Power Pairing series, participants have had the opportunity to consider the changing roles of women in the workplace, as well as the challenges and opportunities facing women in leadership roles – both formal and informal. Participants learned more about the impact that women leaders can have on their organizations—and the impact that leadership roles can have on the women who hold them.

 Featured guests will share their perspectives on these issues:

  • How do you define leadership? How does your definition manifest in your leadership style?
  • How has your leadership style adapted and evolved over your career?
  • Have you benefited from a mentor or coach? Have you taken on this role for more junior women in your workplace?
  • How do you manage work/life balance?
  • What advice would you offer to other women who are looking to lead in their workplaces or start a company?

Attendees poured a glass and joined in on a short networking session where they heard from Nasty Woman Wines founder Meg Murray about her journey into launching a feminist wine brand.

Then Technology Association of Oregon’s COO, Cara Turano, interviewed Monica M. Brown, a corporate executive, best-selling author, and motivational speaker who climbed the corporate ladder as a technologist.

Monica gained SCRUM and Project Management certifications while succeeding at every level, from program and product development at AT&T to VP of Technology Product Management at Pandora. As the Global VP of Product Development for the international brand Tucows, Monica continues building high-performing teams by inspiring, motivating, and collaborating to develop and deliver technology solutions.

In addition to sharing her technology journey, Monica will offer advice from her book, Only One, which is the no-nonsense guide women need right now to help them climb the corporate ladder from recruit to senior executive positions. With frankness and candor, Monica offers women in the workplace strategic steps to take control of their career, navigate race and gender biases in corporate America, and successfully climb the rungs to the executive level and beyond.
