Advancing your career and managing multiple roles should not be an either-or. You can champion your career while putting on different hats as a parent, daughter, friend, mentor and more. How can you do it? Take nuggets of advice from some of the women leaders we look up to as they share their wisdom on how to drive your career forward.

Anca Vasilescu, Managing Director, Financial Services

"Have courage and be kind to yourself in the same way that you would be to a team member. Have courage and believe that you can achieve all the things you have dreamt of."

Dipali Ekbote, Director, Accenture Technology and Lead, Lean In Circles @ Accenture Singapore

"First, prioritize your roles and understand that different roles are important at different times and life stages. You will know when you’re ready to take on stretch assignments at work. When that time comes, don’t feel shy or fall prey to that imposter syndrome!

Second, ask for help when you need it. Women can often be too tough on themselves, so it’s important to know when to ask for help. Build your own support group at work too. Lean In Circles @ Accenture is a great way to tap in to the power of the community.

Lastly, pay attention to your physical and mental health. You can do all that you want to do if you take care of yourself too."

Smita Singh Tomar, Senior Manager, Management Consulting

"My two words of advice: mentors and resourcefulness.

Find mentors you trust and connect with. It is important to learn from those who have already succeeded in pursuits that are important to you, both professionally and personally.

Secondly, be resourceful. We often complain about the lack of time or money or supportive people. While that’s a fact, successful women are usually able to find creative solutions or alternate ways of getting things done. Knowing and communicating our priorities, asking for help and trusting others will go a long way in establishing success."
