Nisha grew up in India as the black sheep of the family. She didn't fit the traditional Indian standards. She questioned things around her and pushed boundaries.
She took after her grandmother, her favorite person, whom she describes as someone who didn't believe in societal standards and challenged every stereotype.
Her grandmother told her at a young age, "Always stand up for yourself. If you know, it's the right thing and can go to sleep with a clear conscience, you do it." Nisha has lived her entire life by that mantra.
Entering the workforce, Nisha knew she would face challenges. Women in her home country typically hold more traditional work like caretaking. Yet, she persisted.
She joined a highly male-dominated field. She persisted.
When it came to promotions and leadership roles, Nisha found herself overlooked. She persisted.
In her work, she was often the only woman in the room. Still, she persisted.
"I prefer to show my work by action, I show results, and I hope that is recognized irrespective of my colour, my race, my gender, or my preferences. I let my work speak for itself".
Nisha knew she wanted to keep breaking the glass ceiling.
In 2021, she came to Canada. She challenged herself to do a 2-year MBA in a year and succeeded!
She joined KENT as a Loyalty and Contract Marketing Manager. She found peers, like her grandmother, pushing her to persist.
"Kimberley, my boss, is a strong role model, and I aspire to be a leader like her," she said.
Nisha's strong sense of integrity and diverse skillsets keeps her, and her team motivated to serve our customers in the best way possible.
She leaves women with this piece of advice:
"Women, we know we face challenges at work, and we need to stand up and stick up for each other, help each other grow, and not be in each other's spotlight. It's already pretty tough out there; we don't have to make it tougher on each other. If we lift each other, we will grow together".
