On working at FSG
“I was drawn to FSG on the strength of our ideas. I very much wanted to achieve meaningful and measurable social change, and I saw that FSG was generating ways for organizations to do that, every day, in every corner of the world. Now that I work here, I am discovering that the strength of our ideas is rooted in our people and in our internal and external relationships. It is a privilege to come to work every day and engage with incredibly intelligent people who truly want to make a difference, both as clients and colleagues. I appreciate that FSG is a place where we can listen to each other’s ideas, experiment together, and even fail in order to eventually create real and lasting change.”
