    Diversity in Web3, and getting more South Asian women into Web3

    Diversity in Web3, and getting more South Asian women into Web3

    Rakhee Shah is a PR aficionado by day, Web3 cofounder by night, having started Gold Bangle Club in 2022 to bring more South Asian women into the Web3 space.

    Rakhee has a background in leading campaigns in social purpose and behavioural change such as cancer awareness and the rights of women in the workplace during maternity leave and post-baby. She has worked at various PR agencies ranging from Freuds to specialist agencies looking to reach ethnically diverse audiences, and while on maternity leave she discovered the world of Web3 and the possibilities it held for social purpose.

    With her Web3 hat on, she spends her evenings building Gold Bangle Club with her cofounders Hamisha Mehta and Nirali Patel, weaving together culturally rich artwork and storytelling with of course blockchain technology.

    We talked about life split between Web2 and Web3, and how to get more ethnically diverse communities into Web3.
