Born in India, raised in Hong Kong and Singapore and living in Canada, Ritika Dutt’s multi-cultural upbringing and blended identity will resonate with many third culture newcomers.
Ritika is an Indian-Canadian entrepreneur and co-founder of the technology company Botler AI. Having faced a months-long workplace harassment ordeal that resulted in her resigning from her position for her safety, she channelled her frustration and pain into making it easier for others to understand and navigate the law.
Botler AI empowers people to stand up against traumatic harassment, violence and misconduct and pursue their legal rights through a secure and personalized first response and action guidance system.
Ritika’s journey is one of grit and compassion. In this episode, we reflect on her journey so far, from the immigration challenges she had that put her at risk of leaving Canada to being recognized on the Forbes 30 under 30 list and working with Canada’s Department of Justice to tackle workplace harassment head-on.
