Sorry for the long absence on blogging here - things have been busy on my end. It is amazing how, once out of the corporate world, new experiences open up to you in a way you didn't even realize you were missing. Since getting a new job, I now have more time to devote to things I truly enjoy doing - including researching and writing about anthropology and business.
In that vein, I was recently featured in an interview on the blog, Anthropologizing. The act of reflecting on my experience in the corporate consulting world has been incredibly eye-opening. There is so much potential for those of us with anthropology backgrounds to provide to business - the key is sharing with each other the ways we have used our skills out in the workplace, and teaching others how to market themselves accordingly. In that spirit, I have also been asked by the bloggers of Anthropologizing to write a journal article on my experiences in the corporate sector, for which I am incredibly honored and excited. So things have been busy! I promise there will be more reflection on this blog as soon as some more writing has been done on my end.
Journeying into the business world... one undiscovered culture at a time
Welcome to [Per]Suit of Anthropology, a blog dedicated to the exploration of modern business trends and perspectives from the view of anthropologist, with a special emphasis on cultural understandings of work-life balance and disability rights in the workplace. This blog is a way for me to connect two sides of my professional self that I see in constant dialogue. Though the business world and the anthropological world may not believe it - they have more in common and more to learn from one another than readily acknowledged. Topics covered include: Western business practices and the impact of those decisions on socio-cultural institutions worldwide, invisible disabilities, Ignatian spirituality, work-life balance, and some discussion of issues of tourism and its impacts on culture, and common human capital practices in private industry and government.
