Katy Geraghty: In her 23 years with Accenture, Katy has “grown up” in the Human Resources space, with most of her time spent looking after Strategic Global Programs. Leading Global Onboarding means that Katy’s team has the tremendous opportunity to capture the hearts and minds of over 100K new joiners. They continually innovate to create an exciting new joiner experience that begins the moment a new joiner accepts their offer to day 365 of their career at Accenture. Katy lives in Naperville, Illinois with her husband Tom, 3 college-aged kids, and Goldendoodle Penny who enjoys piping in on conference calls. When there isn’t a pandemic, she and Tom love to enjoy live music of all kinds together in their beloved city of Chicago.
