Career Leaps of Faith Hosted by Women in Research Boston
Women in Research Boston will host a panel discussion entitled “Career Leaps of Faith” this Wednesday night October 26, 2016. If you ever wondered how I transitioned from musicology (musical analysis) to multivariate data analysis and primary market research, stop by and hear what I (and three other very accomplished research professionals from Boston’s MR community) have to say about career choices and opportunities.
Panelists: Leslie Ament, SVP & Chief Research Officer, Hypatia Research Group, and Michelle Beaudreau, Client Executive at Forrester Research.
Moderated by Natasha Stevens, Senior Vice President | Digital Market Intelligence (DMI) | GfK.
Career Leaps of Faith: Hosted by Women in Research Boston
Women in Research (WIRe) was founded in 2007 as a means of connecting and supporting women in the market research community. WIRe facilitates education, entrepreneurship and other career development goals through informal networking events around the globe, an educational webinar series, our “Office Hours” online Q&A series and an award winning one-to-one mentoring program.
We frequently get asked about the inclusion of men in our group. Although our focus is on empowering and nurturing women in research, we’re a man friendly group! If you’re a man with an interest in changing the ratio or working to improve opportunities for women in research, we encourage your involvement.
Encouraging the establishment of empowering and nurturing relationships among women in market research through informal gatherings and educational opportunities.
How we do it
