Rao also saw great interest uplevyl.

“Because one thing in the back of my mind was worrying and worrying about living in Silicon Valley and how that place was dominated by men,” Rao said. “And, moreover, how our data is being used.”

“For me, as a working mother and having spent my life in various stages of life, I wondered why so many digital technologies are being built by women.

When women do well, families do well and communities do well, Rao said. She said that the meaning of society should be universal in nature.

Rao has lived a much richer life as a result of her international contacts.

Upville has a lot of men working with the organization and that is the key, says Rao. Uplevyl says it’s about diversity.

“These energy partners, male or female, are surprisingly important and useful,” Rao said.

Uplevyl produces high-quality content for professional women such as videos, podcasts and more, says Rao. She says there is already a lot of content but it is difficult to find and is not tailored to the specific needs of women. Upville says she wants to fill that gap.
