How she reshaped her corporate career to be a voice for change

Malini Raj is Head of Community Engagement in the banking sector, a director on several boards and an advocate for diversity and inclusion.

Do you want to make a difference in the world without leaving your corporate career? Are you passionate about using your skills for good?

This has been a driver for Malini Raj throughout her working life, as she’s built a successful career in financial services.

Malini started out on a more traditional path in investment banking. But she soon discovered a passion for working with people and creating positive change… which steered her into the social impact space.

Today Malini has a multifaceted career, working as Head of Community Engagement at a large bank and lending her skills to an array of not-for-profit boards. She’s also a passionate advocate for diversity and inclusion, not to mention a long-time volunteer.

In this episode, Malini talks about how she reshaped her corporate career to align with her values and be a voice for change – through a series of career transitions, rather than a big leap.

If you’re wanting a more purposeful career or curious about stepping into a board role, you’ll love this conversation.
