Last year, Léna took charge of the Women@BCG initiative in Switzerland as a co-head with a male Managing Director and Partner. Together, they introduced a set of new diversity policies and a retention and advancement program for women in Switzerland. Through their work, the office in Switzerland became the first BCG office worldwide and one of the first employers in Switzerland to introduce a fully paid gender-neutral parental leave. The new program furthermore includes revised flex-time and part-time working models, a support process for returning mothers, and sponsored access to childcare support. It also includes improved sponsorship models for senior women, mentoring for junior women, unconscious bias training for all staff and a speaker series on diversity topics. Léna presented the BCG Swiss diversity journey at a regional Women@BCG conference covering Europe, Africa and South America, and leads senior officer meetings to raise awareness and to discuss solutions to advance diversity at the firm.
