We need more allies at all levels in tech. But what does allyship mean if you’re in a leadership role? Sometimes it’s about being honest and vulnerable. Bhavesh Dayalji is the CEO at Kensho Technologies, an artificial intelligence solutions provider. Bhavesh also has a second role - Chief AI Officer at S&P Global. So how does he balance all of this with his family life? Bhavesh says that it’s hard. The truth is, very few people find the right balance for them. But he’s learning and describes himself as a “husband and father” before anything else.Bhavesh started his career at CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, in Switzerland. However, he joked with his colleagues that he was more interested in how the business owners in the city were utilizing technological solutions. This led him to management consulting and, eventually, Kensho.Bhavesh believes that a culture that encourages women to bring their authentic selves to work can help them feel comfortable and achieve their full potential. He also stresses that the route to inclusive hiring might take more time, but that diversity of thought is critical in the expanding AI space.Join us every episode with hosts Suchi Srinivasan & Kamila Rakhimova from BCG to hear meaningful conversations with women and allies in digital technology and business.This podcast uses the following third-party services for analysis: Chartable - https://chartable.com/privacy

Sometimes we doubt ourselves, and forget to trust what our inner voice is telling us. Charlotte Degot wishes she had begun listening to hers earlier in her career, but believes the journey to this understanding takes time. Charlotte is the CEO and founder of CO2 AI, an AI platform that helps the world's largest organizations successfully manage their end-to-end net-zero journeys. She started her career at BCG and rose to the level of managing director. When she discovered the boundless application of AI, she decided to return to university to learn more about it. That's when CO2 AI was born. It was a significant risk, but she knew it was worth taking. Charlotte invites us to ask the question - “what is risk really?” How can accepting risk help us grow and expand, and what are the actual consequences of failure? Charlotte also lectures at the same institutions where she studied, providing a new generation of entrepreneurs with the knowledge they need to thrive. Join us every episode with hosts Suchi Srinivasan & Corin Lines from BCG to hear meaningful conversations with women in digital, business, and technology.This podcast uses the following third-party services for analysis: Chartable - https://chartable.com/privacy
