WIN Spotlight: Cecilie Dynkel on Empowering Financial Literacy
IIn honor of Women’s History Month, we interviewed members of our WIN (Women In Nasdaq) network about their roles, diverse backgrounds, the impact of the Employee Resource Group (ERG), and what means being an ally of the women’s community. We spoke with Cecilie Dynkel, Director of Sales at Nasdaq and Copenhagen WIN Lead, about the empowerment of financial literacy.
Please tell us about your role at Nasdaq.
I am the sales manager for our Danish members on commodities and also focus on business development initiatives and local partnerships.
Why did you choose to join WIN and what are your goals as a WIN member?
While living in Asia, I worked with Women in Finance Asia (WiFA) to bring financial literacy to women. It was stimulating and motivating to be part of a group that could help gain knowledge in different fields, so I wanted to bring this experience to my own network through WIN. My goal is to inspire others to do their best every day, no matter where they start.
How would you describe the employee resource network to a new employee?
It’s a community where we learn, share and connect. It’s a great opportunity to meet bright and talented people from across the organization.
What is your best memory of being part of the employee network?
My mind wanders to an event we once had with Hanson Robotics, which talked about their technology and the use of AI. We met Sophie the robot and I was able to ask him various questions. A very surreal and super fun experience!
How can people outside the WIN network be good allies for women in technology and business?
I believe in role models and mentorships. My experiences as a mentor and mentee have given me valuable lessons, and I highly recommend that we support and inspire each other.
How do you envision a sustainable future at Nasdaq and beyond?
Thanks to great teamwork, big ambitions and strong leadership, we are moving in the right direction every day. We will always strive for a more sustainable future – it’s part of our DNA here at Nasdaq.
