We need more allies at all levels in tech. But what does allyship mean if you’re in a leadership role? Sometimes it’s about being honest and vulnerable. Bhavesh Dayalji is the CEO at Kensho Technologies, an artificial intelligence solutions provider. Bhavesh also has a second role - Chief AI Officer at S&P Global. So how does he balance all of this with his family life? Bhavesh says that it’s hard. The truth is, very few people find the right balance for them. But he’s learning and describes himself as a “husband and father” before anything else.Bhavesh started his career at CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, in Switzerland. However, he joked with his colleagues that he was more interested in how the business owners in the city were utilizing technological solutions. This led him to management consulting and, eventually, Kensho.Bhavesh believes that a culture that encourages women to bring their authentic selves to work can help them feel comfortable and achieve their full potential. He also stresses that the route to inclusive hiring might take more time, but that diversity of thought is critical in the expanding AI space.Join us every episode with hosts Suchi Srinivasan & Kamila Rakhimova from BCG to hear meaningful conversations with women and allies in digital technology and business.This podcast uses the following third-party services for analysis: Chartable - https://chartable.com/privacy
In this episode, we're excited to introduce our new co-host, Kamila Rakhimova, managing director, and partner at BCG. Kamila takes us on a journey from her native Tajikistan to the USA and through a career that she has mapped out on her terms. Every few years, Kamila gets the itch to try something new. Back in her home country, her proficiency in English and her qualifications in international relations made her an asset in her field. She quickly discovered that microfinance could have a significant impact on underprivileged communities. This niche brought her to the US and eventually to Amazon.At Amazon, she spearheaded the Amazon Alexa Fund, which supported founders in creating innovative businesses. For her, the most meaningful part of the program was being able to launch the careers of underrepresented founders. When Kamila first moved to the US, she followed what she thought was the playbook for success. She quickly discovered that a one-size-fits-all approach didn't work for her. Now, she listens carefully to her inner voice and does things her own way.Join us for every episode with hosts Suchi Srinivasan & Kamila Rakhimova from BCG to hear meaningful conversations with women in digital, technology, and business.This podcast uses the following third-party services for analysis: Chartable - https://chartable.com/privacy
Our confidence levels can change over time. They can also be influenced by "life events": the stuff that happens outside of our career that we have no control over. Despite her years of experience, today’s guest, Deanna Lanier, CSO of Icertis, doesn’t feel confident all the time.Deanna began her career in technology in sales.

The answer to 'what does Insight do' was ridiculously filled with jargon and was a complete non-answer. One must be able to articulate that in a simple way.

What an intriguing title - "In Her Element." It immediately caught my attention, and I'm curious to dive into the discussion surrounding it. From what I can gather, "In Her Element" suggests a focus on someone being in their natural state or excelling in their true environment. https://www.bizmakersamerica.org/los-angeles-ca-usa/business-services/branded-packaging-solution It could apply to a wide range of scenarios - from personal growth and career achievements to artistic expressions and hobbies. http://www.greenvillecityguide.com/los-angeles-ca-usa/local-services/branded-packaging-solution I think it's a beautiful concept to explore how individuals find their passion and excel when they're truly aligned with what they love. It's like witnessing someone shine their brightest when they're doing what they're most passionate about. I'm wondering, have any of you had personal experiences where you felt "in your element"? Maybe it was a moment of pure joy while pursuing a hobby, or per
