As a Lean In launch team member, she helped build the most powerful women’s leadership movement of the 21st century. In her current role as Levo’s chief leadership officer, she’s giving millennials the education and connections they need to thrive in the modern workplace. On top of all that, she’s found time to write a book, “Drop the Ball: Achieving More by Doing Less,” and she’s raised nearly $20 million toward the cause of advancing women and girls.
But for all that Tiffany Dufu has accomplished, the secret to her success might just be all the things she hasn’t done over the past eight years. At the 2017 AppNexus Women’s Leadership Forum, Dufu told an audience of over 260 current and aspiring leaders how “dropping the ball” on certain tasks has enabled her to achieve real goals.
Here are three ways Dufu says women can get more out of life by letting some things slide.
This post is part of our Summer Intern Blog Series! Each of our most recent class of interns wrote a blog post on their biggest accomplishments and lessons of the summer. This installment comes from Montez, a rising senior studying Economics with a minor in Computer Informatics at Emory University. When he’s not in class or working, he enjoys weightlifting, working on his photography skills or Wikipedia surfing.

It wouldn’t be an AppNexus Summit without a session on video, and our most recent Summit on the Future of Trading was no exception. Our video experts, Eric Hoffert, SVP Video Technology, and Michelle Smith, Senior Director of Product Management, were joined on stage by comScore, Tru Optik, and others as we demoed new capabilities and made several exciting announcements.
The focus of the session? Connected TV (CTV): what you can do today, what’s on our roadmap, and what the future might hold.
The week of October 20th was a particularly special one at AppNexus, but not because of anything to do with ad tech. Instead, it was AppNexus Global Impact Week, which is when AppNexians around the world carry out charitable events in their local communities.
This year’s Impact Week was a huge success. More than half our global workforce – about 540 AppNexians in all – volunteered their time for causes they’re passionate about. This led to a total of 1,800 total hours given to charity across 16 different offices to support more than 30 non-profit organizations.
Below, we’d like to tell you more about the approach that led to this success and share some highlights from the week.
