Vogue India recently featured an article celebrating six women technologists and their unique approaches to increasing gender diversity in tech. Among these six women was Geetha Kannan, Managing Director of AnitaB.org India, who spoke to Vogue India about the importance of both recruiting and advancing women in tech. “A lot of our earlier talks made a case for diversity and why you should hire women,” Geetha said. “Now, it’s: ‘How do we hire more women, retain them, and create an inclusive work space?'”
Geetha recognizes that moving the needle is not an easy challenge, stating, “There is a lot of unconscious bias that we have to overcome.” Nonetheless, she remains optimistic about the future of tech, and encourages others to continue the fight for equality. “Stay focused on the goal, and the opposition will melt away.”
