At BCG, Visionaries navigate complexity with ease. They use their insight and intuition to identify the solutions that will create lasting impact. Anita connects the dots to see the bigger picture.
BCG runs on a high-octane fuel of purpose, passion, and persistence. I’ve worked at many places but nowhere else has quite the same magic.
My background is nontraditional and combines filmmaking and investment banking. BCG has been a terrific place to actively use my creativity and logical reasoning in fairly equal measure to solve highly complex problems that rely on art and science.
What makes BCG unique is how deeply people care about their clients, their work, and each other. There is such a high degree of honesty and trust among colleagues all over the world that you feel tremendous confidence in people that you have never met—and this makes working at BCG an exciting journey where you feel like you are constantly discovering new family members for the first time.
Anita holds a bachelor of communications from the University of Technology, Sydney, and a master of international business and law from the University of Sydney.
Q: What international experiences at BCG have been the most interesting for you?
A: Working for a bank in Africa that wanted to be an innovation leader. I saw a great deal of diversity in many respects—diversity of landscapes, of people, of wealth, of histories. It was deeply interesting and surprisingly similar to my home country, Australia.
Q: Why is BCG a good place for a woman to work?
A: For so many reasons. It is packed full of fantastic female role models. It has a range of initiatives within Women@BCG designed to help women succeed. There are many types of flexible work arrangements available, including part-time models, working from home, flex leave, and more. As a woman who started at BCG when I was young, it has grown with my needs as I stepped into motherhood.
Q: If you weren’t working at BCG, what would you be doing?
A: Making films. But funnily enough, working at BCG gives me much of the same enjoyment: working with a group of wonderful people using a mix of art and science to translate a fuzzy vision into concrete reality with the potential to have enormous impact on a large group of people.
