He is hugely inspired by the mission of Street Corner Media Foundation and is grateful to become a board member in order to give back to the local Vancouver community around him. Ravi has spent his career working at the intersection of social impact, technology and business. He started his career as an analyst at an education impact investment fund. He then joined an education technology startup as a Product Manager, helping teachers to automate administrative tasks in the classroom. In 2016, he switched industries and became the COO of Engaged Tracking, an organization that helps investors decarbonize their investment portfolios and build socially responsible investments. Currently, Ravi is a Product Manager at Thinkific, an education technology company that helps people create their own online courses. After work, Ravi is an active community builder for Men of Colour, creating brave spaces where they can show up and build emotional depth together. You can also find him in a dance studio practicing bachata and hip hop, and he is always keen to meet people who can help him improve his rusty Spanish and French skills as well!
