The Problem

The Socio-Economic Divide Continues to Increase

Diversity in the world today is a given BUT inclusion remains a challenge.

Traditional solutions to build inclusion have not yielded the desired results.

There is a widening digital divide and the younger generation is spending less time in building real relationships with people who are different.

The socio-economic divide will widen if we don’t do things differently.

About Us

Pavan Bhatia, Founder

About the Founder

My father worked with the Indian Air Force which meant packing our bags and relocating to a new and unexplored city every three years. It made me embrace various experiences – listening to unfamiliar languages experimenting with new cuisines and most importantly, immersing myself in new social and cultural norms. The diversity and “boundarylessness” of my childhood flowed seamlessly into my professional life.

My work career spans 30 years across India, Thailand, Hong Kong, China, the US and the Middle East. My last role at PepsiCo was the SVP Human Resources for Asia, the Middle East and Africa…. a region encompassing 70 countries!

As I grew to be a cultural nomad in my own country, our 14-year-old daughter Tarana, is growing up to be a cultural nomad outside her country. Meal times are peppered with her searching questions about cultural differences and relationships.

Our travels, work experiences, friendships with people of different ethnicities, combined with Tarana’s constant questioning, inspired my wife Archana and I to have our second child – GenWE! People tell you that you should have your children early (I guess that’s why in most startups founders are in their twenties). But what can I say except that I am a late bloomer 😊
