As a part of the Women in Engineering Day week, Express Computer has interviewed eminent personalities from the technology space to give more perspective on how women are thriving in this industry.
A dream of making India a superpower and an extreme passion for science and engineering, Express Computer gets in an exclusive conversation with Jaya Vaidhyanathan, CEO of BCT Digital (Bahwan CyberTek group) to understand her journey better.
Jaya has worked extensively on starting rt360 which is a risk management portfolio for Fintech and joined BCT to kickstart their Fintech initiatives. The product portfolio now addresses all types of risks a bank faces such as Model Risk, Operational Risk, Technology Risk, and Liquidity Risk. The product is coupled with AI, RPA, and blockchain.
Knowing that gender biases exist, how difficult is it to be a woman and thrive in your specific field?
We have to go a long way to achieve the status of gender neutrality. Women have to work twice as hard to prove themselves. The only way to get a seat at the board room is to be exceptionally good at what you do. While we all have priorities, women seem to have much more on their plate both at work and home, so keeping the focus is critical to success. The only way to get over is to look at each challenge as a stepping stone to grow. Be irreplaceable.
