Women of Point B (WPB) is Point B’s community of empowered women (and their allies) dedicated to advancing the personal and professional goals of women at our company.
Women of Point B is dedicated to building a Point B where women are:
- Empowered to achieve their unique version of personal and professional goals,
- Supported by both organizational structure and a passionate community, and
- Treated equitably as individuals and as a group.
Women of Point B exists to empower women to achieve their unique definition of success. WPB will draw upon a diverse mix of professionals across the firm to break-down barriers faced by women in the workplace and advocate for tools, solutions, and structure required for women to succeed. WPB will serve as a community for women to support one another, grow together, and strive for excellence.
Our people and perspectives
I left a previous employer in part because I couldn’t find female leadership examples of how I could reach my career aspirations, be a mom, and make an impact in my community. I joined Point B and found a place where my personal and professional goals and ambitions were not only possible – they were celebrated. I am excited for the launch of WPB and how it will continue to strengthen what we have, increase our potential for more, and build opportunities for women at Point B.Jill Going, Chief People Officer
I chose to lead the Women of Point B BRG because I believe women face unique barriers to achieving their professional goals, and I’m passionate about tearing down these barriers so women can thrive. I believe this BRG is a powerful opportunity to surface the needs, opinions, and ideas of Point B’s women to senior leadership, and to thereby enable change from the ground up. The excitement, enthusiasm, and thoughtfulness that Point B’ers of all genders have brought to this BRG is what makes me confident that we’re building not just a platform for community, but also a platform for change.Kim Illige, Managing Consultant & BRG Lead
International Women's Day 2021
We hosted a panel discussion for International Women's Day (IWD) to discuss this year's IWD theme, Choose to Challenge. Christie Dziubek, Kim Illige, and SiSi Pouraghabagher shared great insights on how allies can support women, how mentorship plays a role in women's success and how continuing to uplift the unique perspectives and talents of women make us all better and brighter.
We look forward to celebrating the amazing women in our lives this month in honor of Women's History Month and all year long.
Let 2021 be the year where we Choose to Challenge!
