Gurumurthy Kasinathan is participating in a panel discussion on the application of data and technology to improve developmental and humanitarian outcomes without exacerbating inequalities and causing harm, organized by the London International Development Network, on 22 October, 2020.

The other panelists include:
- Monica Nthiga, Director of Implementation at Ushahidi, a global technology company founded and headquartered in Nairobi, Kenya which builds data platforms to empower people globally to creatively and collaboratively solve problems.
- Rebecca Telford, Chief of Education Section at UNHCR, and an education specialist with 20 years’ experience in supporting children whose lives are affected by crisis and conflict.
The discussion will be moderated by Anna Scott, freelance editor and communications consultant, who specializes in data ethics, civic tech, and human rights.
