Women in Tech is a leading global organisation working for inclusion, diversity and equity in STEM. Typefi is incredibly proud to announce that Chathini Uduwana, Typefi VP People and Country Head for Sri Lanka, was recently appointed as the Sri Lanka Chapter Ambassador for Women in Tech.
International Women’s Day is a time to celebrate the achievements of women around the world, raise awareness of discrimination and take action to drive gender parity. We are proud to be a tech company with strong gender diversity—35% of our staff are women and three of our five engineering teams are female-led.
Earlier this year, Typefi welcomed Chathini Uduwana, the Sri Lankan Country Head for Typefi, to its Global Leadership Team. Chathini joined Typefi in 2014 and brings over 12 years of management and leadership experience to the team.
In the early days of the 2020 COVID-19 lockdowns, several members of Typefi’s Australian team became obsessed with sudoku. Ben “Baz” Vale, Typefi Senior Engineer, decided to take this obsession one step further by creating his own cryptic sudoku. Can you solve it?
Typefi is made up of a global team of publishing, content, and technology experts. You’ll find our team members in Australia, the USA, England, the Netherlands, Sri Lanka, Romania, Ukraine, Poland, France, Spain, and South Africa. Learn more about our team in this blog post.
The Sunshine Coast (where the Typefi head office is located) experienced several severe bushfires late last year—thankfully no one on our team was directly impacted, except by smoke. Typefi is supporting the bushfire relief effort with financial donations to several organisations and causes.
At Typefi, we believe in the importance of doing our bit for others. Every year, our Colombo team works on a Corporate Responsibility Project to give back to the Sri Lankan community. This year, we selected 75 families in Maa Oya, a remote village surrounded by thick forests and huge ancient reservoirs, to provide with dry rations.
Typefi’s head office is based on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland, Australia, an area of extraordinary natural beauty and environmental significance. Typefi’s Australian team members started thinking about ways to give back to the community, and a bush regeneration project was an obvious choice.
Every year, Typefi’s Colombo team initiates a Corporate Social Responsibility project to enhance local society in some way. This year, we donated school supplies, sports gear, library books and stationery for 55 school children at the Weragala Primary School, located in Anuradhapura district, 185km away from Colombo.
