Anna Pikovsky Auerbach

WERK: reinventing work for women
Cofounder and Co CEO
Harvard Business School ’10

Anna started going to RSM in Newton, MA in the 9th grade (she will admit it was first against her will), but very quickly fell in love with the program. She loved the friends she made through the classes, and her schoolwork became so much easier. In fact, she took the SATs in 10th grade and received a 1490 (790 Math, 700 Verbal). Anna stayed at RSM for several years, and worked as a camp counselor for a few years as well.

She went to Brandeis University on a significant merit scholarship, and studied Economics and Psychology. After college, Anna worked at McKinsey & Company advising Fortune 500 corporations. For graduate school, she attended Harvard Business School and graduated with Honors. After business school, Anna really wanted to apply her business rigor to creating social change. She worked in nonprofit and philanthropy consulting for 6 years – advising major foundations and nonprofits, and ultimately running a boutique philanthropy advising firm.

 

In the midst of all this, Anna became a mom to Asher (now 3), and became focused on advancing opportunities for working moms. She saw firsthand how many highly educated moms were opting out of the workforce because of a lack of flexibility and she wanted to change the work status quo. Together with her partner (an attorney, and also a mom), she launched Werk (www.saywerk.com), a marketplace of flexible, career-building work for ambitious women. The business was launched earlier this year and has already attracted several venture capital investors and major press attention. The skills and confidence she gained at RSM were invaluable to her career and she’s proud to count herself as an RSM alumna.
