Fireside Chat with Rita Kakati Shah
Time & Location
About the Event
EFS and Women in STEM Society are delighted to present our collaboration event ‘Fireside Chat with Rita Kakati Shah’. Once in your place as a KCL student, Rita returns to her alma mater to discuss her influential career journey in multiple industries!
She began as a summer intern at Goldman Sachs, which kick-started her successful 10-year career in investment banking. She then changed career paths to work in the healthcare industry.
After taking a career break, she faced the difficulties of resuming her professional career. Rita took the initiative to set up her own company and she is now the Founder and CEO of Uma, a company designed to empower individuals to return to work after a career break, with a growing presence in London, New York, and San Francisco.
She is a well-established speaker and often acts as an advisor, on various topics, to Fortune 500 companies. This event is a valuable opportunity to hear Rita discuss her successful journey, her insights into industry, and topics such as women in leadership and entrepreneurship, on which she takes a very passionate interest as demonstrated by her co-authoring two books relating to this. You can read more about Rita’s career and achievements here.
Don’t miss out on the opportunity to ask Rita your questions and get the brilliant insights and advice of someone who was once in your shoes!
