Network and relationships. I had a lot of help from staff through Senior partners over years of hard work to make it happen. I’ve held up my end of the bargain to pay back the partners who helped me and I’m working on the rest of the team. I pulled two of them through to PPMD and I have commitments to sponsor three more before I can/would leave.

No assumptions. How you identify as a gender is your choice but stating boys club with drinking and golf implies a particular persona that is no longer desired nor celebrated in business or by the world. Perhaps Accenture has a different perspective or you personally do than the direction of diversity and inclusion.

Interesting question. I really liked the deals I was working on and most of the people I was working with. And that’s what kept me going. Maybe a bit of an illusion/naivety that I could change things from the inside, so I kept trying (but I am only aware of it now)

BCG leadership: this does not feel like the responsible thing to do. Many other companies (including clients) have stopped frequent domestic travel. I hope our concerns are not falling on deaf ears.
