Tell us about your role here?
As a People Partner, my role allows me to support and meet people across all areas of the business, which I love!
It's an exciting time for Condé Nast. The People Team get to support the business through its growth, by launching lots of new employee schemes and initiatives. It is super rewarding to see how these schemes are making a difference to the business and our employees. That's definitely the best part of my job!
Tell us about some of the employee schemes you have implemented and are working on at the moment...
We've recently launched our volunteering scheme. The scheme entitles employees to two paid days per year to use volunteering at any UK registered charity. This scheme is hugely important to Condé Nast, it gives employees the opportunity to not only give back to the community but also do something they are truly passionate and care about. The scheme so far has been a huge success and I love hearing stories from employees about how much joy and meaning their volunteering days brought to them!
What is the secret to a happy and positive workplace that you have found in your experience?
For me I think communication and collaboration are hugely important in achieving a positive work culture.
What does our company manifesto mean to you?
It makes me proud to be a part of a business where anything is possible, no matter who you are or what your role is. Everyone's input and voice matters, which makes Condé Nast an inspiring place to be!

Born in Mexico City and raised in Guadalajara, Maria Fava never would have predicted that she'd have a career in financial services. And certainly not in Maryland.
Over two decades ago, when Maria moved to the U.S. to study psychology at the University of Texas at Arlington, she'd planned on moving back to Mexico to study law after graduation. Instead, she fell in love with an unassuming Italian-American her senior year. She married him and moved to Maryland, his home state.

The world has changed in the past few weeks.
We're watching corporations and organizations across the world come out in support of Black lives in droves. Many of those organizations are doing so for the first time in their history.
I thought about writing this blog piece like one of those quizzes that used to be on the back pages of Seventeen and Cosmo where each question would offer several answers of varying point levels and you'd pick one answer per question, tally up your points at the end, and match your score to one of several possible results.
