Slalom’s Associate Consultants participate in the Consulting Foundations Experience – designed for anyone who is new to consulting. Whether you’re early in your career or transitioning from another field, it’s designed to support your understanding of our business, the way we approach consulting, and the important role you’ll play in helping clients reach for and realize their vision. The experience includes additional business and technical academies, so you can focus your experience and build consulting skills quickly in a blended learning environment.
In honor of our pledge to lead the way in driving a more inclusive future by striving for gender parity, and as a sponsor of Grace Hopper Celebration 2021, we are introducing The Consulting Foundations Slalom Women Cohort. This all-female cohort is one of the many ways Slalom is continuing the spirit of the celebration after the event. This cohort will have an enhanced experience to include programing designed to support the development of Slalom Women. All women joining the October 2021 cohort will have the opportunity to join our Slalom Women Employee Resource Group (ERG) and will also be aligned with a female mentor to support their professional development and help build their networks at Slalom.
Associate Consultants develop practical expertise in new and emerging technologies through participating in one our Data & Analytics Academy:
