As part of our “Bring What You Bring – Women in Leadership” blog series, we’re celebrating several of our women in leadership to find out what they bring to the organization.
Meet Nada Buckley. She’s the Director of People Business Partner, ANZ
What does a Director of People Business Partner, ANZ do?
Nada takes a leading role in managing the ANZ People Team, and provides People Business Partner support to the ANZ Sales Business, as well as providing advice and guidance across general people issues.
“I wear an APJ Talent Development hat, in conjunction with my other APJ and Global TD partners, to develop and deliver critical training right across the APJ business.”
Bring What You Bring
At CA, employees are encouraged to work with one another and build on each other’s strengths to create richer results. This ‘Bring What You Bring’ ethos is spread right across the organization and when speaking to Nada about what she brings to CA, she told us that her main asset is her experience and passion, as she believes in delivering value to employees and making a positive impact on the business.
“I have had the good fortune to perform different management roles over the course of my career, including leading the CA APJ HR Team, and having the great opportunity to live and work in Hong Kong for 10 years. The exposure to the diversity of this great region, and to be able to apply that learning to our business issues every day, is both a privilege and a gift.”
One piece of advice for current or future Women Leaders
Nada believes that a woman should be true to herself. She should be authentic and should have a sprit to never give up – even when it gets dark out there.
“Be deliberate about choosing WHO you are – both at work and outside of work – and never allow anyone to make you feel small – because that is a choice that every one of us has within our own control – so don’t give that power away to others.”
My female inspiration
Nada has many female role models, but mentions her biggest inspiration is her Mother.
“My mum – she is the purest, most authentic, as well as strongest person I have ever known. If I can be even half the inspirational person that she is, then I will have achieved something in this life.”
Women in Leadership qualities
CA Technologies has a core of DNA that align with the company’s mission, to eliminate the barriers between ideas and business outcomes. Nada has selected the most important DNA trait that she feels will make her a successful woman in leadership at CA Technologies.
