Where in the World Wednesday! Featuring: Jill (Boyd) Sawa 3/18/15

Jill (Boyd) Sawa, ’01 MA-HRIR, currently works as an HR Manager at Woodard & Curran, which is a privately held 800-person engineering, science, and operations company headquartered in Portland, ME. She works out of the Andover, MA office. She was just named Associate of the firm and is very excited about her new position. Jill recently returned from a two-week trip with her husband and two-year-old daughter to Japan. “The purpose was to visit family. I was interviewed by my husband’s cousin about my personal experiences and experiences in the US in general with regard to maternity leave and child care for a Japanese publication. I kept having to reiterate that FMLA is unpaid because his cousin was so shocked!”
