The McGill Alumni Public Policy Society (MAPPS) cordially invites you to attend their first public panel and private networking event, International Women’s Day Panel - Women in Consulting (from a Policy Perspective).
Policy decisions affect every aspect of our lives and as a result a background in policy can lead to a multitude of careers. In honour of international women’s day, join MAPPS as they highlight the careers of women in consulting from a policy perspective.
Stepping away from a typical MBA profile and armed with a mastery of policy, Joanna Klimczak (Senior Consultant, BCG), Kathy Liu (Senior Cybersecurity Consultant, EY), and Charlotte Reboul (Consultant, KPMG), stepped into the world of consulting, where they are now focused on issues of management, sustainability, cybersecurity, and economics. Listen as moderator Nirushaa Senthilnathan (President, MAPPS & Senior Policy Analyst, CMHC), explores with the panelists what policy graduates have to offer the world of business, rooted in their learnings from their Master of Public Policy or Administration from the University of Oxford Blavatnik School of Government, Columbia University School of International and Public Affairs, and McGill University's Max Bell School of Public Policy.
