⚡️ Save the date: Women in Tech Global Conference 2023 will take place on May 9-12!
Are you excited to speak at the Women in Tech Global Conference and what motivated you to join our community of 100 000 women in tech, minorities, and allies?
Equity for marginalized and under-represented groups has always been one of my great passions. Therefore when I came across Women in Tech's Global Conference, it was the perfect opportunity to continue to role model, help and serve our community. The power of such communities is important, lasting & can reshape the future!
Share with us about your background, your journey in tech, and what inspired you to develop your career in this direction.
I grew up in India where my father took me into his workplace one day and showed me one of their early computers. I remained fascinated as I heard about his day-to-day "working on a computer" in the 70s. Eventually, I obtained a computer engineering degree, worked as a journalist, then decided to follow my own version of the American dream. After a Master's in MIS here from Texas A&M, I stumbled into a career in Risk Consulting/Compliance with KPMG. And a decade later, I joined Meta. But with every single decade, I saw the world of technology hit a new inflection point, a significant pivot... and with it came the need to have a policy, business, trust & safety, and a scale mindset.
Why is the topic “Building trust among diverse leaders and groups” important to you?
I've had the honor and privilege of leading very diverse groups of people at various stages of my career. Diversity is beautiful in that it elevates us through different voices & ways of thinking. But we are humans and trust is earned among any group of people. I've continued to dedicate my time towards building trust among diverse leaders and groups as that ultimately pays off in the most enduring possible way for any company.
Who would you advise to attend the Women in Tech Global Conference and why?
Everyone! Women of course but allies are always important. No matter where you are on your learning, inclusion or general leadership learning journey, come join us! Tech evolves quickly and learning how to operate in and lead through each evolution is important.
