Anita Gurumurthy

Anita is a founding member and executive director of IT for Change, an India-based NGO that works at the intersection of development and digital technologies. The organisational vision on social justice in the network society draws upon Southern critiques of mainstream development, and its key strategy is to create and work through trust-based coalitions and horizontal alliances. Through her work at IT for Change, Anita has attempted to promote conversations between theory and practice. In addition to research responsibilities at IT for Change, Anita also leads the work of the organisation's field resource centre that works with grassroots communities on 'technology for social change' models. Equity and community-ownership, focusing particularly on socially marginalized women, are the cornerstones of such model building.
