Women’s History Month

Katie Kinsella

Managing Director, Global HR

Q: What advice would you share with a woman just launching her career?

A: After college, I was fortunate to join a well-established HR team, with great female mentors who I continue to stay in touch with today. During my first year, I tried to absorb as much as I could from them, especially from an employee relations standpoint, when most situations are not black and white. Having stories of their past experiences to draw upon was extremely helpful for my own career development. My advice for anyone starting out is to actively listen and engage with your more experienced team members. You’d be surprised how much you learn from small anecdotes at happy hour!

Martina Bozadzhieva

Chief Research Officer

Q: Tell us about a woman you look up to/who has influenced you and why

A: Growing up in Bulgaria, there was still a legacy of a state philosophy that encouraged women to be involved in all sorts of activities, from advanced mathematics to heavy industry, which meant women around me had all sorts of professions and skill sets. I was surrounded by many strong women—family members, teachers, mentors, and friends—and I can say they all influenced me by excelling in their fields, being leaders in their communities, and being fearless in the face of challenges. They never made me question whether I could or should not do something just because I am a woman.

Allison Thayer

Managing Director, Operations and Strategy

Q: How are you breaking barriers faced by women in your field?

A: I don’t have the typical on-paper background for someone in Operations: I have a liberal arts degree, no MBA or formal business operations/analytics training, and my prior professional experience was in primarily research-focused roles. So I’ve had to make smart use of the skills I do have—like critical thinking and problem-solving, and an empirical approach to understanding different business functions—as I gradually beef up some of the quantitative and technical skills I need. This has allowed me to be effective at my core responsibilities while bringing a unique perspective to business operations and strategy that others with a more “typical” background wouldn’t have.
