About Srujana: A free and open source software enthusiast who's more interested in the colorful rainbow of gender. An activist striving for a better world.
Reason for being involved in workshop: Half of my career has been in designing and implementing education and outreach programs. Workshops is something that is close to my heart — it gives the opportunity to all the participants to express themselves (unlike a talk). Workshops help strengthen the bonding between participants so that they connect in a human level — this is extremely valuable when it comes to knowledge sharing. I aim to learn from others, especially the unique challenges they face, while sharing with them tips and case studies related to CfP so that we can collectively address some of them.
