Camy Bhandari
Co-Founder, NZ Tech Rally

Camy is a co-founder of NZ Tech Rally, and organising tech conferences is her thing. An import to NZ from India, she has been in the Wellington tech scene since 2013. Camy specialises in Quality engineering by profession, but after going through several rounds of ego deaths & identity crises in her 30s, she’s found her grounding in representing and highlighting the state of minorities in tech.


Maslow's Hierarchy
Careers & Teams Breakout Session

Mainstream tech career advice works for the majority, not the minority. In this talk, I’ll show you why and how the career evolution for a migrant tech worker is very different from that of a native New Zealander. I’ll use Maslow’s hierarchy of needs model as my base to help you understand why there is still a significant disparity in representation in middle management and leadership roles in engineering and tech in general.
