As a working mom of two boys, one with special needs, the path to my current role at the partner level has been long and hard, and not one that other women had traveled before me—at least not in the public audit space in Atlanta. As one of the first women in this role, I haven’t really had any role models, and, early on, it was hard to talk about what I had going on at home.

A big part of my role has been helping to build the culture at PwC, one that fully embraces the concept of bringing your whole self to work. I think we’re successful in this as a company, and I make great effort as a partner to create a comfortable environment for others.

I believe strongly in empowering and coaching people to help them realize their full potential, understanding that this looks different for every individual Lisa Heskett Assurance Partner, PwC

Being the mother of a son with disabilities carries a unique set of challenges, but raising my son has also helped prepare me to be an impactful leader. I believe strongly in empowering and coaching people to help them realize their full potential, understanding that this looks different for every individual—particularly for employees with disabilities. It also means recognizing differences as strength, which PwC does well.
