Richa Dubey is a social impact consultant with a background in communication, content and marketing across multiple industries and sectors. She has a deep interest in community development, handlooms, and Sufism.

Passionate about social justice and women’s safety, Richa conceived and implemented the 2012 Gurgaon Girlcott, a campaign for positive and affirmative action towards a safer Gurgaon for women. The primary aim was to encourage women not to indulge in expenditures like shopping or eating out that benefit the private sector in Gurgaon. The goal was to put the onus on private merchandisers and mall-owners—a community that can influence the city’s administration—in order to raise the issue of women’s security.

She moved to Seattle from Gurgaon, India, with her family two years ago.
