Meet Taryn. As a senior consultant in Deloitte’s Risk and Financial Advisory practice, Taryn assists teams with SOX compliance and report issuance, control testing, and other internal audit projects. Through candid conversations and brainstorming, she helps clients imagine potential risks and optimise opportunities to thrive.
For Taryn, Risk is about thinking outside the box to help people. She is energised by the complexity of risk strategy, its emphasis on innovation, the range of conversations she gets to have and the opportunities her work gives her to help clients solve problems in unique ways.
Taryn believes more gender diversity in Risk and Compliance will help teams challenge preconceived ideas and cultivate balanced conversations. As she points out, “when companies emphasise having a gender diverse workplace and senior leadership, it shows in the sales, it shows in investments. It’s an increase, all the way around.”
One of Taryn’s proudest moments in Deloitte Risk Advisory is her participation in the Chief Audit Executive (CAE) programme at Deloitte University (DU). In this three-day event, over fifty C-level executives are invited to DU to discuss their business difficulties. At CAE, Taryn was able to help clients think creatively about their challenges and share potential solutions they had not yet considered.
Taryn advises women considering careers in Risk:
There are so many times I see in myself and other women that confidence can be lacking. But you are capable of so much more than you think.
Be confident, and never assimilate.
We need more like Taryn. We need more like you.
