May 15, 2012, New York: The Center for Talent Innovation (formerly the Center for Work-Life Policy) is pleased to announce two new appointments. Joyce Shim will join the Center as Vice President, and Tara Marie Gonsalves as Research Associate.

“We are proud to have Joyce and Tara join the Center for Talent Innovation,” said Sylvia Ann Hewlett, CEO and founder. “Their impressive credentials, wide ranging research and international experience will bring depth to our ever-expanding global agenda.

Joyce Shim earned a BA in Political Science at Rutgers University and a Masters in International Affairs and Social Work at Columbia University where she is currently a Ph.D. candidate writing a thesis on the cross-national effect of family policy on working women’s choices in East Asia. She has worked in a wide range of capacities for organizations such as the United Nations, United Nations Children’s Fund, Legal Aid, Human Rights Watch, and Korea’s Welfare Ministry. A Korean American, Joyce has lived and worked in Korea and Spain and travelled widely in Europe and Asia. She is fluent in Spanish and Korean.

Tara Marie Gonsalves earned a BA from Brown University in Development Studies and Economics, and a Masters in International Education Policy from Harvard University. After earning her BA, she worked in India as a researcher and held a Fulbright Fellowship in Indonesia. More recently she has worked at the Kennedy School at Harvard University and the Institute for Education and Social Policy in New York. Tara is South Asian and is proficient in Spanish.

The mission of the Center for Talent Innovation is two-fold: to drive ground-breaking research that leverages talent across the divides of gender, generation, geography and culture; and to create a community of senior executives united by an understanding that full utilization of the global talent pool is at the heart of competitive success.

Among the Center’s recent and forthcoming studies are: The Battle for Female Talent in Emerging Markets (Harvard Business Review, 2010), The Sponsor Effect (Harvard Business Review Research Report, 2010), For LGBT Workers, Being “Out” Brings Advantages (Harvard Business Review, July/August 2011), and Executive Presence (Harvard Business Review, forthcoming fall 2012).
