My career is my classroom

My story of expectations, redefined

 

It's beyond work at Grant Thornton


Before joining Grant Thornton, I thought I knew what working at a public accounting firm was all about — that I would be doing work I enjoy, but at the end of the day, I would just be a number on the team. But what stood out and surprised me from day one at Grant Thornton was the firm’s culture. Here, they care about serving clients and about you, and that’s had a huge impact on my professional growth in and outside of the firm.
 

I have people in my corner


When I first started out in my career, I didn’t feel supported in developing my leadership skills. But at Grant Thornton, firm leaders have been intentional in helping me grow, supporting my participation in leadership programs like ENCOUNTER Charlotte and the Emerging Business Leaders Program. Now, I apply the skills I’ve learned to mentor and coach individuals on my teams.

 
 

“Something I really appreciate about working here is that what's important to me is also important to the firm. Grant Thornton is committed to supporting me in my career journey because if I succeed, they succeed."

  
—    Nora Richmond

         Manager, Advisory Services

 
 
 

I’m encouraged to find balance


I started an executive PhD program this past fall, and Grant Thornton has supported me by encouraging the utilization of flexible working opportunities and flexible time off when I need to travel to classes. Because of these benefits, I'm able to continue doing the work I love at Grant Thornton, while pursuing my own interests and growing as a professional in new ways.

 

I’m paying it forward


I have always been passionate about being involved in business resource groups (BRGs), and upon joining Grant Thornton, I felt supported and encouraged to jump right in and continue that work as a leader in the Black Professionals & Allies BRG. As a Black woman in the accounting field, it’s important for me to help create a space for people who look like me to feel like they too can succeed in this industry.
