On working at FSG

“I came to FSG because of the promise to support deep and sustainable social impact with some of the world’s leading social change actors. While this has been the centerpiece of my FSG experience, I’ve also had tremendous opportunities for personal growth and exploration. The organization is deeply committed to continuous learning not just for our clients and the sector but for ourselves.”
