Meet Priya

 

As Head of Employment Legal for BNY Mellon India, Priya provides legal guidance to our businesses and corporate staff groups in the country and region, which encompasses 15,000 employees.

 

What excites you about working at BNY Mellon?

 

I am very excited about my BNY Mellon journey for a number of reasons, including the ability to have a voice at the table, the constant innovation and working for a company that is a pioneer in so many ways.

 

What does International Women’s Day mean to you?

 

It’s a celebration of women, their rights, their equal status and their strengths. It’s also a time to reflect on women’s continued struggles and an opportunity to commit to doing more and better together, irrespective of gender.

 

Tell us how you’re living our Strength in Diversity value at BNY Mellon.

 

I own this responsibility and walk the talk. It is very important for me to gather strength of diversity and use it in every aspect of my life, both in my personal life and at work. It is my vitamin — I treat it like I do not have any other choice, otherwise I would never evolve as a human being.
