Let Memories Roll was born. Her first social entrepreneurship.
“Consultants make the best instructors! When you teach somebody – you validate ideas, and thoughts; you know your concepts better.” Shilpi Agarwal
“I found a way to make my own mark.” Shilpi Agarwal
That is how DataEthics4All was born in 2020.
“Shilpi is a force for good. She drives change with her leadership skills to motivate a community to execute her vision and to dream big. She does this with zero ego and immense kindness to educate everyone to bring data literacy to the world.” Sudha Jamthe, CEO of IOT Disruptions

“All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident”. Arthur Schopenhauer
“I have yet to see another Hackathon that is so ethics focused as this one!” Aishatu Gwadabe, Grand Prize Winning team member of Ethics4NextGen Hackathon
