How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

I have always been a big believer that feedback is a gift. I encourage our employees at IAS to send me ideas directly so that I can hear directly from our employees. I’ve heard some really great ideas already. We actually changed our parental leave policy within the first few weeks I was here because of notes I received from the team.

Lisa

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I get a lot of support from my direct manager, and from other managers that have helped me shape my own position and career trajectory based on things that interest me.
