Influential leaders from the National Bank of Australia (NAB) share their career advice to show support for women across every industry on International Women’s Day.
International’s Women’s Day is a day to celebrate the journey women and girls around the world have taken to get closer to creating a society of equal opportunities and prosperity.
CEO of BNZ
“The best role is the one in which you’re using the skills and passions you enjoy. Use every role as an opportunity to learn something new. My dad always said to me “you can do anything with a positive attitude, hard work and delivering the outcomes”.
“I believe you can have a rewarding career balanced with a fulfilling family life. But it’s unrealistic to pretend that it’s easy, you must be committed and it takes loads of hard work. You must be really focused, clear on your priorities (family and work) and get the support required and you will succeed.”
NAB Chief People Officer
“Be ambitious and help other people to set and achieve bold goals too. Never, ever stop learning.”
NAB Head of Asia Business Development
“Talk to yourself more, on who you are, and what you want to be and form an action plan. Because once you know where you are going, the world will open up to you.”
NAB Chief Executive Officer
“As a father of two working women, as the CEO of NAB, and as a Male Champion of Change, I want women to be able to achieve their goals, whether they are my family, our customers, employees or members of our community. I want our women to back themselves, be bold and know that we back them.”
NAB Chief Legal and Commercial Counsel
“Women thinking they need to mimic men or mimic other successful women in order to be successful – that just doesn’t work. We have to be authentic to ourselves, to our values and to our purpose.”
