Episode 78: Culture and Balance
Guest: Janelle Woodward
The Head of Fixed Income at BMO. Janelle Woodward is responsible for fixed income capabilities across BMO Global Asset Management’s $250B platform. This position, this responsibility… it’s a rarity as a woman in today’s day. In fact, Janelle was raised in a home with the belief that women were supposed to stay at home. Now, she’s the first generation professional women in her family. After having her first son, she quickly realized there was more that drove her than just being a stay at home mother. Listen in to hear Janelle touch on the importance of a work/life balance and how her three children pushed her to become a better mother and harder worker. Seriously, how does she oversee billions of dollars in fixed income globally and raise three children? Did I mention she also has her CFA? You’re an inspiration to us all, Janelle.
