An insightful interview by Paul Roos and Gerard Murphy, founders of Performance by Design.
Paul Roos and Gerard Murphy interviewed Janine Kirk AM patron of Brilliant Women Global and Ana Marinkovic Advisory Board member of Brilliant Women Global.
Janine Kirk is Chair of Phoenix Australia and former CEO of The Prince's Trust.
Ana Marinkovic is an Executive General Manager at NAB.
Janine and Ana shared their inspirational experience of diversity and inclusion, and how these values are relevant to organisational culture.
Pursuit of purpose and impact has been the driving force in Sandy Chakravarty’s successful career which has crossed cultures, industry sectors, board and executive roles. Wide ranging experience has taught Sandy the art of creating value through innovation and people.
State Trustee CFO and GM corporate services, Sandy Chakravarty’s career was founded on a thorough education. She read Economics at the University of Mumbai to Masters level and went straight on to complete an MBA at the SP Jain Institute of Management and Research. She is also a Fellow of CPA Australia and also a graduate of the Australian Institute of Company Directors.
The stage was set for a global career with meaning and impact.
Sandy describes herself as a strategic leader who is able to draw on wide ranging, global experience to drive effective decision making and value creation.
“Experience across commercial, not for profit and government agency sectors, enables me to bring an innovative lens to finance and operations to support organisations in developing and delivering strategy.”
Sandy says that she thrives on change and she has certainly lived by this throughout her career. She moved from Mumbai to Melbourne and after a year with Arthur Andersen, she took a role in Finance for Bristol Myers Squibb (“BMS”) where she progressed across various areas of Finance and Operations and lastly as a Finance Director.
Although Sandy was successful in building a non-exec career, it was not an easy path.
“I became very aware of unconscious bias in boardrooms and the lack of cultural diversity on boards. It made me really appreciate the environments that I had worked in where diversity of cultures and opinions were actively sought out and valued.”
