November 16, 2020
Our Women in Leadership Spotlight series shines a light on some of the many talented women who work on our team and are committed to developing and empowering their female colleagues.
This month, we're shining the TD Securities Women in Leadership spotlight on Vidya Narasimhan, Head of Enterprise Data Support, Asia Pacific. Vidya is passionate about leveraging the power of data to drive business decisions with speed and accuracy.
Head of Enterprise Data Support, Asia-Pacific
I lead a high-performing team of enterprise data engineers and am responsible for ensuring the stability of TD's Big Data platform and applications.
I am proud of giving my best in every role I take on. I once held a dual role in another organization, and when I let go of one of the two roles, I was replaced with 13 people!
Advice to My Younger Self:
When I was younger, I was afraid to fail and, hence, afraid to dream. I owe much of my career success to bosses who saw in me what I could not see in myself. They nudged a reluctant me into uncharted territory, and they were right to do so because looking back, I never failed, regardless of the size of the goal they set for me. The advice I would give my younger self is to not be afraid of the unknown - the risks are well worth the rewards and the life lessons you'll learn.
