Running clubs, outdoor Meetups, or attend socially distanced activities. The other option is Bumble - you can connect with like-minded women there as well.

I have just over 2 years experience in consulting, I am focussed on FS clients but still a generalist for the most part and I’m not truly enjoying consulting. I would like to be client facing with a good work/like balance, and so have looked at roles such as customer success or account executive. However, I’m wondering what other types of roles could work for me? (I realise there are so many options but I just have no idea and so don’t know what to look for!) Would appreciate any and all ideas!

Considering a mini pivot from growth/performance marketing to a product marketing role and hoping for a gut check from those who have done both. I'm trying to move away from the transactional culture of growth marketing, which feels like a numbers game. I'm also intrigued by product management and user research, but not ready to invest in that bigger leap, so product marketing seems like a half-step to get more exposure to those teams. Am I on the right track here? Any advice on the transition?
