When KonfHub started out in 2019, the vision of driving tech learning and upskilling through the tech community was led by the co-founders Ganesh Samarthyam and Hari Kiran. The company now boasts of a passionate tech and community team making KonfHub one of the few go-to platforms for creating and hosting tech events.

Women at KonfHub

Diversity and inclusivity are at the helm of the team at KonfHub with coders, developers, consultants, and marketing professionals working remotely from across the country.

“It’s been a little more than two years since I joined Konfhub. When I first started here, I was the only woman here. Today we have women in the community team, Konfhub team, test engineers, and even in consulting as well,” says Rashmi Subhash, Lead Software Engineer at KonfHub.

While coders and testing engineers amongst women are few in the industry, KonfHub has increasingly tried to provide more opportunities for women engineers to make the company more inclusive.

Working remotely

Triggered by the worldwide pandemic, the entire team at KonfHub has become remote. This has helped tap into the latent talent of professionals who have been looking for work-from-home opportunities to restart and build their careers.

“I have more than 6 years of experience as an Assistant Professor teaching students different languages and their application. I wanted to switch and become a Software Engineer. KonfHub gave me that opportunity. I am a mother to two young children, yet the working environment and culture at KonfHub allows me to dedicate time to both KonfHub and my family,” says Priyanka Sirohiya, Software Engineer.

The call for gender equality

This International Women’s Day, 8 March 2022, UN Women and the world are coming together under the theme “Gender equality today for a sustainable tomorrow”.

Sustainability and an equal future are goals that we, at KonfHub, aspire for. Empowering women with equal opportunities and building an environment that helps foster career growth & learning opportunities for women is at the center of our culture.

We celebrate and congratulate the women in our teams and our lives. It’s not just today, but everyday that we recognize their excellent contributions in making KonfHub one of the leading event management platforms.
