July 17, 2017 — Gaurav works as a Happiness Engineer at Automattic. He is in the web industry for about 8 years, and have donned a number of hats during this period, including startup founder, developer, designer, business manager, front office, 3d architectural designer, in-house developer etc.
With this talk, he want to explain how he have perceived these issues during his involvement in communities over the years, and want to raise some questions about the current situation, and what can be done to improve (and what exactly do we call improvement in such a case).
July 5, 2016 — Having graduated in Social Design, my ability to merge this field with communication in the world of web puts me in a stimulating position today, but it’s a position not many women know they can reach; especially women of colour – since the tech world is portrayed as a male-dominated industry. I hope to contribute to the growing conversation about how we can make tech more welcoming and accessible for women whose contribution in such fields is often overlooked.
