Untangling Culture from Culture: Exploring the Experiences of Women Tech Entrepreneurs in India
Eggers Hall, 341
The Moynihan Institute's South Asia Center presents Ingrid Erickson, associate professor in the School of Information Studies at Syracuse University.
Yet, despite these cultural supports, India has produced very few female tech entrepreneurs or tech leaders to date. This research seeks to explore the social construction of tech entrepreneurship in India, specifically how this construction is held together by a variety of cultural and organizational norms and practices and how this reality translates to the on-the-ground experiences of Indian female entrepreneurs, both in India as well as in other areas of the world.
Ingrid Erickson is an associate professor in the School of Information Studies at Syracuse University. Her current research focuses on the future of work, particularly the human qualities and capacities that may be required (or are becoming revalued) in the increasingly automated future. In 2022-23, she spent five months as a Fulbright-Nehru Research Scholar at the Indian Institute of Management, Bangalore (IIMB), where she began a new research project about the experiences of Indian women in their roles as tech entrepreneurs.
