About this event

We're highlighting women in professional consulting - how women can enter the profession, be successful, and meet the unique challenges of working in and influencing an often male-dominated industry. Join us for the ‘What’s up Wednesday’ Digital Series on May 12 to explore women in consulting. Our panel consists of four Certified Management Consultants who exemplify excellence in their respective fields. We’ll learn from them how women approach consulting and leadership differently with positive results. We’ve extended the time to allow participants to join the discussion and share their experience.

Our panel

  • Moderator: Lyn McDonell, FCMC, C. Dir., President of The Accountability Group
  • Dominique Dennery, FCMC, IAF, PROSCI, Health & Wellness Coach and Facilitator
  • Eva Maxwell, CMC, Management Consultant at Gelder, Gingras & Associates
  • Sonya Gulati, CMC, Senior Manager at KPMG

Some Topics we will be exploring:

  • How to get into consulting… no matter what stage of career
  • If women approach consulting differently with unique ways of seeing, listening and relating to clients, team members, and networks beyond the firm
  • What the real challenges are
  • Whether and how women of colour face special hurdles and what can be done to elevate their visibility, voice, leadership and impact

In an open discussion, panellists will hear from the participants and answer their questions. If you have a question to pose in advance to the panel, please register and ask your question via the registration process. The panellists will be reviewing all feedback and will do their best to respond to the main interest areas.
