Dell Executive Leads Boston Chapter of Nonprofit Targeting Diversity Gap in Tech Industry

A longtime executive at Dell, a New England Council member, is launching the local chapter of a nonprofit called Advancing Women in Product (AWIP), which helps women enter and succeed in technical product management roles. Bindu Tuli, Dell’s Director of Product Management, will work to address the diversity gap in tech management by providing skill-based training, networking events and executive mentorship.

Tuli outlined the first three objectives she has while working with AWIP. Initially, she hopes to offer content in the form of panels or workshops that focus on leadership, technology, and career building-related topics. She also aims to build partnerships with other like-minded organizations that focus on gender diversity. Finally, Tuli will work do develop an active community that works together to advance this cause.

Tuli explained, “I am starting from scratch, but AWIP is a very established organization; the San Francisco chapter has been there for over a year. My plan for AWIP is to enable and empower women in tech leadership roles, and we plan to do it by providing skill-based workshops as well as mentoring opportunities. We also want to offer career guidance.”

The Council applauds Bindu Tuli for her important work at Dell and AWIP, and for encouraging greater diversity in the tech sector.
