Ask her what excites her most about her career, and she’ll say the opportunities are endless and something can be learned from every experience. “I am constantly amazed at the speed and quality of results that can be achieved by simply bringing the right people to the table,” Srivastava says. “I am lucky to be in a profession where my perspective on complex issues is both valued and appropriately challenged by the diverse group of experts that I get to work with on a daily basis.”

She says she is fortunate to be surrounded by a group of inspiring leaders at PwC who have gone above and beyond to sponsor her growth and career progression, both personally and professionally. “My husband, also a consultant, and family members are my biggest cheerleaders.”

As far as the Rising Star award, she says she is “grateful to be able to represent my firm and amazing project teams through this recognition, without whom I would not be where I am today,” Srivastava says.
