Listen elsewhere...

Climb In Consulting is all about sharing the best insights and advice from the leaders in our field, to help you get to the top. Time and time again, our podcast guests have demonstrated that regardless of your background, gender or race, you can climb in consulting.

In celebration of International Women’s Day, today’s episode shares some of the inspirational advice and insights from a selection of the female consulting leaders that we’ve had on the series so far. Women who have built fantastic careers in the consulting industry and who serve as great role models, both to other women looking to build their careers, as well as leadership teams looking at what they can do to improve gender diversity in their firms.

In this episode, you’ll hear from female leaders from across the consulting spectrum, from boutique consulting founders to big four partners, including Irene Molodstov formally CEO of SIA Partners, Hannah Farrar Chief Executive of CF, Tricia Nelson from EY, Tara Lajumoke MD of FT Strategies, and Jess Frame MD and Partner at BCG.

They share their poignant perspectives on how women can build successful careers in consulting, including:

• The real-life examples of gender bias that they’ve faced as women in the consulting industry, and their advice to senior leaders on what needs to change to improve gender equality.
• The importance of supporting women in your firm before, during, and after maternity leave and what you can do as a senior leader, whether male or female, to help set both expectant and returning mothers up for success.
• And advice for women working in consulting on what you can do to climb to the top and emulate the success of today’s guests.

Whether you’re a woman building a career in consulting, or a senior leader, who wants to do more to level the playing field, we know you’re going to get a ton from this episode.

We hope you enjoy the show!
