'Advance career by staying connected to the past', Samantha Saperstein, JP Morgan Chase
THE PAYPERS - Tuesday 25 May 2021, Editor: Mirela Ciobanu - We sat with Samantha (Sam) Saperstein, Head of Women on the Move at JP Morgan Chase who shared insights on helping women advance their careers, their companies, and the quality of their lives.
Samantha, please take us through your professional experience gained so far and tell us how does your professional background tie into the topics discussed at PayTechWomenLive (presented by Wnet)?
Throughout the event, we talked about career development and the unique support and resources that women need to advance their careers. My own career path has been marked by some significant pivots; I started my career in business journalism, went to business school, and then shifted into consulting and financial services. As I progressed, I continued to build my skills in strategy, product development, marketing, and communications, and leverage those skills into new and larger roles. My latest pivot came after I participated in a career development program at the firm tailored to women. The program involved creating a bold vision for my professional and personal life. By sharing that vision with senior level mentors, they helped me realise my next goal. It led me to my current role as the Head of Women on the Move.
