From unconscious bias to the leaky pipeline, there are many obstacles that women face when pursuing a career in technology. Geetha Kannan, Managing Director of AnitaB.org India, spoke with YourStory about how we at AnitaB.org are trying to address these challenges and increase diversity in tech. One of our initiatives is our annual Grace Hopper Celebration India, Asia’s largest gathering of women technologists. The Celebration — which is being held November 14-16, 2018 in Bangalore — features multiple sessions, workshops, and even a career fair to support women in tech and remind them that they belong in this field.
“[W]e all need to genuinely believe that women are equal and crucial to building the technology our world needs,” Geetha said. “This thinking will drive the real change.”
