Standing Out Podcast: Anjali Dilawri: Laughter and Conversation | BYA Special

Some good things really do come in smaller packages – such as the close-knit networking group Anjali Dilawri co-founded several years ago. Called “Laughter and Conversation,” this select business women’s group has helped participants make a meaningful difference in one another’s lives. Similarly, after her maternity leave, Dilawri opted out of her former “big six” CPA firm career, and joined the mid-sized Logan Katz, LLP. There, she was able to work part-time when her kids were young, and transition into becoming the firm’s first female partner. A finalist in the 2019 Women’s Business Network of Ottawa Business Woman of the Year Professional category, Dilawri describes how she has successfully balanced family and career in today’s Standing Out podcast.
