Globant, a digitally native company that helps organizations reinvent themselves, announced the regional winners of the fourth edition of the Women that Build Awards on August 8. Indian-American Glendale School District teacher, Lalitha Murali was named as an Inspiring leader from USA/Canada.

The awards recognise exceptional women in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) who have broken barriers and made a positive difference in their disciplines. It also provides global awareness, education, and networking opportunities, empowering women-identifying individuals to flourish and demonstrate achievements that occur when technology meets passion. Hailing from India, Lalitha Murali works as a Glendale School District teacher.

She pursued her bachelor's and master's degree from the University of Madras, India. When she first started teaching, she realized that there were just a few immigrant and minority students in gifted programmes. Lalitha believes that given the correct materials and experiences, each child may achieve his or her full potential.

She began reaching out to marginalised groups in her school by launching educational outreach programmes and organising workshops, and today she has a strong advanced level programming for all of her pupils, with more minority and immigrant children participating. In 2017, Lalitha was named one of the top 20 women of impact in her state for her educational leadership.

She was also chosen as one of the top 21 International Rotary Peace Fellows in 2019 and spent three months in Thailand. She is one of the 2023 Kohls Fellows for her leadership skills as an agent for positive change and her superior ability to inspire a love of learning. This year's Women That Build Awards are supported by global partners such as NYSE, Salesforce, Women Corporate Directors, Udemy, and Coachub, as well as local marketing from over 40 organizations.
