Covid's Impact on Women in the Consulting Industry 

In 2021, let’s reflect on how being remote has shifted work for women in consulting. Join us this panel discussion to hear from those closest to this situation, and to have a lively audience dialogue on how we can help our companies realize the benefits Covid may have brought women in consulting, and how this change can help retain some of our best female talent within the industry. 

Those in consulting who were used to flight travel Monday through Thursday to the client site suddenly found themselves at home (or in their local company office) and seeing their clients remotely on Skype or Teams. While not ideal, the benefits were reduced expenses billed to the client with airfare, hotel charges, meals, etc., not to mention reduced time engaging with the client while onsite.   

Suddenly, you can attend your child's ballet recital (albeit remotely) or help make dinner for your children AND eat with them on a Tuesday night!  All the while still maintaining a stressful job and interacting with your team, client, and generally keeping the work (and lights) on. Could not having be out of town the majority of the week be a benefit to women (and others) in the consulting field? Perhaps remote work every week could reduce the weekly stress of travel and enable attainable paths to Partner or promotion?

ACMP Midwest is hosting a panel discussion to hear from a select group of women directly affected by this situation and how organizations worldwide need to adjust to this new reality for their workforce. We want to hear both positive and negative experiences from those in consulting. As well as learn if companies are having discussions about how this situation might positively impact female retention in the consulting industry, thereby changing how women see consulting career paths for themselves long term.
