Typefi challenges gender bias in tech, with Sri Lankan women leading the way

Maroochydore, AUSTRALIA, Colombo, SRI LANKA – Earlier this year, Typefi welcomed Chathini Uduwana, the Sri Lankan Country Head for Typefi, to their Global Leadership Team. Chathini is a Business Information Technology graduate from Staffordshire University, UK, and has just completed an MBA from Bedfordshire University, UK. Chathini joined Typefi in 2014 and brings over 12 years of management and leadership experience to the team.

Every year, Typefi’s Colombo team initiates a Corporate Social Responsibility project to enhance local society in some way. Our efforts can range from implementing environmentally friendly policies in the workplace to donating money or essentials to worthy causes.

We like to focus on helping kids in rural schools. Sri Lanka provides free education for everyone, and all the Typefi staff members in Colombo have taken advantage of free education, but often schools in rural and remote areas do not have access to the same resources as those in the city.
