mChats with Rajni Narasi

In our latest mChats episode, Rajni Narasi, Millennium’s Deputy Counsel and Co-Chair of the Millennium Volunteer Network, speaks about a key turning point in her career and the importance of colleagues, community and family.

What brought you to Millennium?

The 2008 financial crisis was a turning point for many careers and is what led me to Millennium. The people and the work have kept me here for over 14 years.

What career advice would you give your 22-year-old self?

Don’t be afraid to ask questions. When I was younger, I was hesitant to speak up and ask questions because I assumed that everyone else in the room was smarter and understood everything. I’ve found over time that when I have a question, at least one other person has the same question.

What brings you joy outside of work?

I love spending time with my family. Whether we are snuggling on the couch watching The Voice, enjoying the scenery in upstate New York or running around NYC, time with my husband and daughters helps me recharge.

Tell me more about Millennium’s Volunteer Network.

I am so proud to be co-chair of the Millennium Volunteer Network. It is a great opportunity for employees across the firm to meet and give back to the community together. We’ve done many amazing events over the years, such as handing out meals and essential items to those in need near our New York headquarters, packing backpacks with school supplies for NYC children, revitalizing urban spaces and painting murals.
