Balance. That seven letter word loaded with emotion, with controversy, with double meaning, with second-guessing – and yes those occasional pangs of guilt. Gender balance. Work-life balance. The word balance itself leaves much to personal interpretation. When I joined Zeno almost ten years ago, my children were 9 and 12. I was anxious about this daunting, big new job. I […]
When you get pregnant, no one person’s advice can mimic your exact experience – just like discovering how to make motherhood and work coexist, it isn’t the same for each of us. However, during my nearly 17 years as a part of the working mothers group, there are several key mantras I consistently reference that […]
This past spring, Zeno’s transfer program Tour De Zeno was announced and opened up globally– I just about dropped the cup of coffee I was holding. The opportunity to travel to any Zeno office in the world, fully immerse myself in the culture, clients and life for two weeks? It was almost too much of […]
The number of industry events sparring for attendance can make it challenging to determine which will net the strongest ROI. When we think about events, we leverage data and perform a strategic review of media coverage, press attendance, social conversation on the event and search engine activity to reveal the best events for us to […]
I had the pleasure of spending a week working with our team in Paris as part of our Tour de Zeno initiative. I’d been awaiting my trip with excitement, not least at the thought of all the great wine and cheese I’d be able to stuff my face with (telling myself it’s okay because I’m […]

Can’t pick mom or a Zeno colleague. The women the selected were intriguing, inspiring and international. MURILLO OLIVEIRA, ZENO BRAZIL I have two inspiring […]
[:en]Bodies – and the effect they have on self-confidence – have been a topic of hot debate in the UK lately. While the contentious so-called Protein World ‘fat shaming’ beach body campaign has stirred emotions and sparked protests in recent weeks, campaigns like This Girl Can are filling media space with stories and images of personal […]
During Chicago Ideas Week, I had the pleasure of attending the launch event, hosted by Hillary Clinton discussing her latest book, Hard Choices. I am a huge fan of politics and grabbed a ticket as soon as they were on sale! The event featured the former First Lady, U.S. Senator and Secretary of State in a one-on-one interview with her friend and colleague from the Clinton administration, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emmanuel.
