Sailaja (sigh-luh-jah) Joshi is a client innovation specialist with the Accenture Boston Innovation Hub, as well as an entrepreneur, lover of gnarly problems, and aspiring dog owner. Her love for research and gnarly problems started after undergrad when she began working for multinational corporations alongside studying anthropology. For nearly a decade after undergrad, Sailaja has combined her skills as a social scientist alongside her passion for solving business problems in her own consulting agency, working with small and large corporations to help them solve their problems. Outside of Accenture, you can find her looking up dogs to adopt, hanging with her two adorable kids, asking her husband when they'll be able to adopt a dog, and quietly planning benevolent world domination. She’s also probably making ice cream and cookies.

Cha Cha can’t really call herself a native Tucsonan anymore, having studied, worked and lived across New England for the past 20 years. After receiving her undergrad degree at Bowdoin and MBA at Babson, she made a career transition from finance to corporate strategy, where she currently serves as Head of Insights for PUMA Group SE. Cha Cha has lived all over the Boston area, calling Cambridge, Allston/Brighton, Boston and now Newton home.
Alice is a problem hunter and solver who is continuously moving Northeast to escape the bugs (from DC, to Pittsburgh, and now Boston, with a small stint in Shanghai). She’s currently a Workday consultant who is focused on creating an intuitive environment for her users to thrive in. She enjoys living in the space where technology meets the arts and is commonly seen wandering the streets to find new things, whether it’s odd vintage tidbits or desserts. Once a year, you’ll find her at PAX East asking too many questions for someone who does not play games.
