Kirti Adlakha

Board Fellow

I was born and brought up in Delhi, India. Intrigued by the power of technology, I completed my Engineering degree in computer science. I had the privilege of working with IBM and Infosys. At Infosys I worked in Banking CRM as a Technical Analyst and at IBM, I led Compliance Management and did customizations using lean Six Sigma. I was also involved in a Toastmasters Club as a Vice President (Education).

I moved to the United States after getting married. Throughout my growing up years and even in my adulthood I have been involved in educating women and children. In the U.S. I volunteered for a non-profit called Reading Partners and helped improve the reading skills of children from disadvantaged communities.

I am currently pursuing my Master’s of Business Administration at UC Davis Graduate School of Management and life couldn’t be better – I am able to apply my classroom knowledge to real life business problems.
