DIVERSITY, EQUITY, AND INCLUSION

Alexis Lavko, Director at Epsilon Economics, graduated from the University of Chicago Booth School of Business with an MBA in 2008. The recession at that time had created a struggling economy and difficult job market, but these circumstances ultimately jump-started a career that Alexis loves. Because of the state of the economy, companies were looking for creative ways to monetize assets, which eventually led to an uptick in recognition of intellectual property. This trend led Alexis to a job at an IP consulting firm.
