Why did you join Publicis Sapient (PS)? How long have you been here? What is your role today?
During my interview process, I could see that folks were really living the core values. I was referred to PS by an employee, so I also heard great things about the organization and the people though my referral. I’ve been here for 9.5 years and I am a Director of People Strategy, part of our North America People team.
How has PS supported your career journey so far?
I have been able to play various roles on the People team. I started as a Senior Associate focusing on Global Mobility and People Operations for Canada. This gave me an opportunity to learn several parts of the organization and narrow in on the path I wanted to focus on. I was then able to transition to the People Strategy team, enabling me to be a partner to the business while supporting our people. I have grown through the organization and have had the support of great leaders and colleagues. My manager and business leads have given me the flexibility to extend outside of my role and encourage my areas of interests, including my commitments as part of the HUE team and other Business Resource Groups (BRGs).
What does being a member of HUE mean to you?
I appreciate that we have this BRG. It allows for connection, dialogue and support. Some of the conversations that we saw happening around the world in 2020 were discussions that those of us participating in HUE have been having for several years. It was a shift to see more engagement and interest in the experiences of our Black Colleagues.
