Although the Kalgera team comprises individuals from diverse backgrounds, our values and motivations for creating this technology are shared. This inclusion and alignment of values has contributed to some fascinating and productive team discussions on how to improve the suitability and accessibility of Kalgera’s novel solution for all its users.
At Kalgera, we take the view that our diversity will bring the skills and experience necessary for the whole team’s success: there’s a 50:50 split between the men and women on our team.
Although technology stereotypes are changing and encouraging more diversity, especially as millennials flow into the workplace, room remains for more women to join our quest to make tech work for good.
When it comes to decision-making within a company, there is a general image that comes to mind: a pale (and stale) group of men calling the shots. This exclusivity is becoming more familiar within mainstream conversations and the need for diversity within the workforce is not a new phenomenon. In Kalgera’s endeavour to support the elderly and vulnerable, embracing diversity across the company encourages unique and varying insight, increasing the chances of creating any positive customer experiences.
