At BCG, Allies bring a sense of collaboration and excitement to their teams. They create an atmosphere of trust and support in which people can do their best work. Katherine champions uncommon ideas.
BCG saw potential in me that I didn't even know was there.
It is really hard to summarize all the things I love about BCG. Instead, here are some e-mails I wrote in the past year—unprompted—which show the breadth of the experiences I’ve had and, more important, the connections I’ve made at BCG:
To a training facilitator: “ I wanted to take the time to express how grateful I felt today for the training we received four years ago (and as always the continuing support from BCG teams to this day).”
To my small women's group: “Some of my best memories and why I feel so committed to BCG is how supportive other women have been.”
To advanced degree BCGers in my office: “I have been so fortunate to have coworkers who rally around me and make me feel greater than myself.”
Katherine holds a BA in mathematics from Rice University and a JD from New York University. She practiced as an attorney in mergers and acquisitions before joining BCG.
