Bryanne: Diversity in computer science and company leadership roles remains a major issue in the tech industry. Despite efforts to introduce coding at earlier ages, schools struggle to prepare teachers to teach computer science skills and the curriculum is uninspired. Our mission is to break down barriers in computer science education to make learning to code more fun, accessible, and inclusive! Our first product, Unruly Splats, combines coding and recess-style play by empowering students to design games with programmable floor buttons that students code to light up, make sounds, and collect points when stomped on.
Naomi: TomboyX is a progressive underwear and apparel brand for people of all shapes, sizes, and orientations. We work to empower people to live their most confident life in style and comfort via our great fitting and inclusive designs.
Komal: Menstruation is closely connected with the possibility of future motherhood. While my society extolls motherhood, it looks down on menstruation to the extent that the menstruating girls or women are generally considered pariahs. Females are made to feel ashamed and somehow ‘less’. This mistreatment is because of a lack of knowledge and, often, long-held superstitions. I started Project UnMukt to change things for those who go unheard, for those who hesitate to speak, for those who choose not to share, and for those who suppress their emotions and silently carry their ‘burden’. We aim to make their voices heard, build their confidence, and inspire them to be happy with their bodies and minds.
