Women In Tech collectives, India
Proposed by Bhuvana Meenakshi Koteeswaran
No. of presenters: 5
- We would be representing the Women In Tech collectives, India community.
- The Women In Tech collectives, India is a Self Help community which was initiated by Bhuvana Meenakshi Koteeswaran in March 2021 when a team of technology geeks, mostly women from these rural regions, reported about their sudden unemployment issues in the course of the pandemic. They were working for some local companies in the region as their families never allowed them to travel far to work.
- This community had to face social stigma to pursue their careers in tech and also continue their education on computers. Many women anonymously reported their concerns, because their families depended on their salaries, and staying at home increased their daily chores, so they were in need of some kind of job that can satisfy their daily essentials and medical emergencies.
- That’s when we formed the team and started to send word by mouth and WhatsApp messages to gather around those who are facing these issues.
