NUGGET CONTEXT Maternity is a critical transition for women and like Anu mentions, you don’t know what you don’t know in terms of how things will play out. She talks about her lessons from that passage of play. She also talks about how she took stock of options out there when she returned to work post maternity and discusses typical mistakes women often end up making in this phase. GUEST Anu is a Partner with McKinsey Global Institute (MGI), the economics and business research arm of McKinsey & Company. She is an alumnus of IIM Ahmedabad and worked for a few years in Banking before joining Consulting at McKinsey. Subsequently, she moved from the Consulting track at McKinsey to her current role at MGI through some experiments along the way.
In our conversation, Anu spoke about some of the influences in her childhood and how they have equipped her for life. She also reflected on the various transitions she has been through (Transitions within Banking, Banking to Consulting at McKinsey to MGI, Maternity etc.) She spoke about how she has gone about gaining clarity around what gives her energy and how she has slowly gravitated towards that over time. She also shared some of MGI’s insights on the Future of Work and how leaders and organizations could think about staying relevant in that future.
