I am confident the disparity between the number of senior finance professionals and junior finance professionals within our community will shift over the coming years. As a Tamil in finance, I am excited to be a part of a group that will work to accelerate this change.
Being a part of TiF’s pilot Mentorship Program gave me the opportunity to practice my management aptitudes. Leadership is a valuable skill in the workplace, as is the ability to help others learn and progress. Being a part of this program allowed me to engage and help someone with an entirely different background than myself, which was immensely rewarding.
TIF aims to connect finance professionals and develop future leaders – both crucial to building the talent pipeline within our community. In addition to paying it forward, our group strives to provide budding professionals with opportunities that were nonexistent to many of us when we entered the industry. The TiF community is more than 200 professionals strong and growing, making us the largest network of Tamil finance professionals in Canada and an organization that is unique in terms of reach and impact.
