Manav Rihel Kumar is coming to ODA Inspiration Day 2024

Manav Rihel Kumar has a rich background, starting in the Norwegian Armed Forces where he focused on recruitment and leadership at the War Academy. He later shifted to the telecom industry, taking on key leadership roles and winning several awards for his management skills in both the public and private sectors. Manav holds a master’s degree from the London School of Economics and a bachelor’s in military leadership, logistics, and resource management from the Royal Norwegian Naval Academy.

Manav founded Diversity Index, a tool that helps organizations understand their diversity strengths and pinpoint where to make improvements. He believes that what works for one company might not work for another, often saying, “Every organization is unique. Just because something worked for a company in Palo Alto does not mean the same thing will work for your company at Fornebu.”

Now, as CEO of Seema, Manav works with companies to improve their diversity, from assessing their current state to making real changes.

We’re excited to have Manav speak at ODA Inspiration Day 2024 on June 6th at the Oslo Concert Hall, and online! For more details and registration, visit ODA Inspiration Day 2024.
