Why you should attend EY-Parthenon’s Women in Consulting event
EY-Parthenon encourages you to join its virtual panel discussion. All are welcome – it’s a perfect opportunity to learn first-hand about working lives in strategy consulting and get some top graduate application and career tips.
Six inspiring panellists, a mix of female managers, directors and partners at EY-Parthenon, will reflect on life at EY-Parthenon (EYP) and talk about their personal experiences and opportunities in strategy consulting at its panel event. As in many sectors, although there is a good gender balance at the associate level at EYP, the retention of women becomes more challenging at senior levels.
Topics covered during the webinar will include what it’s like to be ‘the only woman in the room’, transferrable skillsets, the different opportunities available to graduates at EY-Parthenon, training and development, the challenges of being a parent in strategy consulting, and many more.
The panellists’ personal stories are particularly inspiring. Tal Hewitt, for example, will talk about how her experience as an actor has influenced and shaped her career path. Starting in in-house strategy, she is now a Partner in EYP’s UK Media & Entertainment practice. Anna Grotberg, Partner in the EYP EMEIA Education Practice, will discuss how being a woman in strategy consulting has made a differential value to her career. Manureet Bath and Ceren Cevik, both Managers in EYP-TSE (Transaction Strategy & Execution), will talk about working in technology within strategy consulting – how a technology background fits into strategy consulting. Muna Sunna, Director, EYP Consumer Products and Retail Sector, will reflect on how her international experience has boosted her career growth in the Corporate Strategy Practice, and Marta Csibra, Engagement Manager in the EYP Energy Sector and EY Global Renewables Team, will address the challenges parents face in strategy consulting, and the differences between the female and male parent experiences.
Their reflections and stories will be followed by an interactive networking session, which will be your opportunity to ask any questions you have about the consulting career path in general or EYP. You may have queries about being a woman in consulting, for instance, or working life in corporate & growth strategy, or EYP’s culture, or perhaps the competitive graduate application process at EYP. Whatever your question is, you’ll have the opportunity to submit it to the panel.
EY-Parthenon strives to get as much diverse talent as possible, recognising that colleagues in diverse workplaces thrive and prosper. Although this event has a focus on women in consulting, it aims to encourage and highlight diversity and inclusion in all areas. The hope is that by the end you’ll feel informed and inspired, and perhaps ready to apply. EYP will be welcoming applications from aspiring strategy consultants until 21 October.
