    Narmada Guruswamy, Assistant Director in the Forensic Data Analytics practice at EY, discusses her role in techUK's Skills & Diversity council.

Narmada Guruswamy is an Assistant Director in the Forensic Data Analytics practice at EY. She works on projects that help clients with Compliance, Remediation and Fraud analytics. She is keen on the people agenda and leads a workstream for EY’s Women in Tech group. We talk to her about her motivations in joining the techUK Skills & Diversity council.

Why did you join the techUK Skills & Diversity Council?
Talent is the biggest asset for any company. While hiring great people, it is a key requirement to empower them with the skills they need to succeed both personally and for the company. This is an area of immense interest to me and I am working on this within EY, so joining the Council was a good way to engage with other companies in this space and look at the broader picture.

What does diversity mean to you?
Not being at the table means not being part of the solution. We absolutely need to have representation of the people we are serving if our work/products/service are to be fit for purpose. This means we need to identify any imbalances in diversity, address systemic blockers and ensure that more people are enabled to find a seat at that table.

Name a skill you believe will be essential for the next generation.
Learnability. The world is changing at breakneck speed in comparison to even 50 years ago. In order to survive and thrive, people will need to recognise, learn and embrace new technologies, new ways of thinking and new modes of working on an ongoing basis. So the ability to learn will be key for the next generation.
