Golden Gate Bridge is the perfect backdrop for women’s gathering centered on connections

Posted by ZS on May 9, 2017 2:00:00 PM

Sausalito, a small town just outside San Francisco, was the perfect backdrop for a recent event sponsored by ZS’s Women’s Leadership Initiative (WLI). That’s because the rare cloud-free sky offered crystal clear views of the Golden Gate Bridge, and “building bridges” was the central theme of this year’s two-day summit.

Each year the WLI, a group dedicated to supporting women in building successful, long-term consulting careers, brings our firm’s women together to discuss topics of particular interest to women, share stories and best practices and gather inspiration from peers.

Why “Rising Stars” winner says ZSers born after 1979 have an edge

Posted by ZS on May 8, 2017 2:00:00 PM

If there’s one thing ZS Associate Principal Christina Corridon feels passionately about, it’s healthcare. This passion is what led her to pursue higher education—she earned her MBA and master’s in public health while working full time—and ultimately what led her to ZS in 2014.

Since joining, Christina has found her home in the oncology vertical. She works primarily on marketing strategy projects, taking our competitive scenario planning offering to clients. Over the last three years she helped launch the Oncology Value Watchdog thought leadership series and has become a leader in ZS’s biosimilars vertical. She's also an active member of Boston's Women's Leadership Initiative team.

Princeton ZSers empower young women to stick with STEM at #LEADLIKEAGIRL

Posted by ZS on Apr 14, 2017 4:00:00 PM

ZSers from our Princeton office proudly sponsored and participated in Stuart Country Day School’s #LEADLIKEAGIRL conference, an event that brought more than 900 young women grades K-12, mentors, parents and teachers together to empower the next generation of female “risk-takers and changemakers”.

The conference’s mission—to support young women studying science, technology, engineering and mathematics—was near and dear to that of ZS’s own Women’s Leadership Initiative (WLI). ZS’s analytics-based approach means we recruit heavily from the STEM fields—where females have been historically underrepresented—so we strive to empower women who pursue them.

Sign On for the Work, Stay for the Culture: Sandra’s Story

Posted by ZS on Apr 7, 2017 2:00:00 PM

I joined ZS as an MBA summer intern in 2000. When I was looking for summer opportunities, I actually didn't want to do consulting. I had worked in consulting before and didn't think I wanted to do it for the rest of my life. I loved the job—the work, advising clients, working in teams—but didn't like the lifestyle and having to be consistently away from home. I was married with a 2-year-old daughter, and having a good work/life balance was really important to me. I ran into ZS while going through the summer process and it suddenly seemed like this magical place where I might be able to “have it all.” I could do the work that I loved but not be away from home so much. I decided to try it out and saw for myself that it was true. Even if I travelled, there were lots of opportunities to help manage that aspect of my job. I worked hard but I enjoyed it, and I wasn't always away from home as I had been in my previous consulting position.
