About Alison

Ali graduated from Columbia Business School where she focused on Human Capital and Data & Analytics, spending her summer as a Data & Analytics intern with Estee Lauder’s Innovation team as part of the company’s Presidential Management Associate Program. She built on her passion for the people space with her independent study on the evolution of management and human resources practices, following several years as an executive search consultant moving from research through to client management and development.
