"I work within the Country Analysis division of the EIU, heading a team of industry analysts that spans New York, London, Gurgaon and Singapore. When I joined TEG over 24 years ago to cover Eastern Europe, I already knew about its reputation for both high-quality content and commercial success, but I have stayed this long mainly because my job has never become boring - it has changed and grown along with the company. I have also learnt a huge amount, much of it from my colleagues, which is one of the benefits of working for a company that prizes intelligence and careful thinking. I take pride in the fact that our work can help clients make better-informed decisions, often in ways that make a real difference to the world." - Ana N., Industry Operations Director, Research CA, London, U.K. #WomenofTEG
"I was initially fascinated to joining TEG because of its renowned brand name and global presence. I work in the EIU Healthcare consulting practice on projects involving data analysis across Asia Pacific, Latin America, Europe and Middle East. Since joining I have been impressed with the commitment to integrity and quality that emanate from the top and flow throughout the rest of the company. TEG cares about its clients and employees and works considerably and competently to succeed. Employee-friendly culture makes it an ideal place to work. I work with some of the brightest and most innovative professionals in the field, who are upbeat and hard working. This is exactly the working environment in which people can develop and make a difference." - Sakshi S., Senior Data Analyst, Data Analytics & Consulting, EIU Healthcare, Gurgaon, India #WomenofTEG
"What drew me to The Economist is the quality and credibility of the content, imperative in a world where it's getting harder to tell fact from fiction. Five years on, the ceaseless efforts to uphold our research standards and protect the brand continue to amaze me. At The Economist Intelligence Unit, we are producing content and leading conversations on hot-button issues that make it an exciting place to work. " - Melanie N., General manager, Dubai and Senior Editor, Thought Leadership, The Economist Intelligence Unit, Dubai #WomenofTEG
"What enticed me to join the Economist Group was its diversity and global focus. Indeed, this is beneficial for the work that we do and the clients that we engage with, but for me, it is much more personal. As a young woman of colour at an early stage of my career it is often very easy to be engulfed by imposter syndrome. However, the Economist Group’s values and diversity— from the fascinating people that I am privileged to work with to the wide-ranging projects I am always eager to work on—have helped accelerate my confidence in the workplace. These values are reflected in the consulting work that I do on a daily basis, whether I’m working on innovative insights for increasing access to higher education or drawing out the implications of building ethical technology. These exciting projects consistently align with my own values, are great learning opportunities and help me build relationships with exceptional people both within and outside of the Group - a truly enriching experience!" - Ailia H., Research Analyst, Public Policy Consulting, London, U.K. #WomenofTEG

"I was initially drawn to joining TEG because of its global values. The majority of my work in the EIU Healthcare consulting practice is done across offices, and on any given day I'm communicating with team members positioned around the world. Since joining, projects have taken me to Europe, Asia, and the Middle East and most recently I completed a 3-month secondment in our Singapore office. Having a strong international presence is a benefit to clients because we deliver local market expertise & insights, but it’s also one of our most valuable internal assets. Being a truly diverse group improves our cultural competence as individuals and gives us the ability to learn from experiences outside of our own. I'm grateful to be a part of an organization that encourages these opportunities and shapes how I view the world." - Angela K., Associate, MedTech and Life Sciences Consulting
"As an Analyst in the Public Policy consulting business, I help governments, foundations, non-profit organisations and corporate clients to better understand the impact of public policy. My team designs and implements rigorous research programmes to answer important questions, and uses the information generated to draw out insights for future action. Work occasionally gets hectic - it is consulting after all - but the impact of our work makes it worth it. I've been in this role for just over a year and I've learnt a lot, not just from project work, but from the incredible global public policy team. I deeply appreciate seeing women in leadership roles across the business - my manager, her manager and the director of the public policy practice are all women. It's created a wonderful environment to work in, and I am thankful for this opportunity." -Ayesha K., Public Policy Analyst
