About Our Leadership Team

Elaine Davidson is the founder and CEO of the Beacon Lane Career Lounge - a division of Beacon Lane Consulting

Elaine made her mark in Corporate America as an authority in Global Corporate Talent Acquisition (TA) and Recruiting Operations roles for some of the world’s finest and most prominent consulting and financial services organizations. After spending two decades building world-class Talent Acquisition strategies internally, she opened the doors to Beacon Lane and started bringing her depth of recruiting expertise to companies across industries and geographies. However, this is only one side of the equation.

Elaine saw a gap in the market. She saw early career professionals struggling to navigate the job search process, losing their way and often times settling for jobs that did not align with their skills, aspirations and potential. Over time, she and her team created what is today known as PIVOT12 – – Beacon Lane’s signature Employment Curriculum, by reverse engineering the recruiting process they put into place for their global clients. Over the past several years, Beacon Lane has helped hundreds of early career professionals land jobs as a direct result of this program, opening pathways to economic empowerment.

Elaine believes that without employment, it is nearly impossible for individuals to get on a path toward economic self sufficiency, followed by economic empowerment, and that the ripple effect can be overwhelmingly damaging. It is with this in mind that Beacon Lane first partnered with non profits in the career readiness space, delivering the program to students from underserved communities and those who would not have otherwise had the opportunity. 

“Our goal is to see the PIVOT12 curriculum offered to ALL early career professionals across the higher education landscape via our B2B partnerships. Furthermore, we will continue partnering with organizations to bring gender equality to the workplace through this program and our services. All of Beacon Lane’s work is rooted in our commitment to building pathways toward economic empowerment.”

Elaine earned her Master’s Degree in Social and Organizational Psychology from Columbia University in New York City and her BBA in Accounting & Information Systems from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. She graduated from Coach U, one of the world’s most reputable ICF-accredited coaching programs, earned her certification in Conflict Resolution, and is Six Sigma certified. As an HR Executive, she led global enterprise-wide change initiatives that reshaped and advanced Human Capital agendas.
