Olina Banerji

Olina started her journalism career at the India Today Group as a features correspondent. In a sharp U-turn, which she says, she is now accustomed to, she next joined Ashoka, a global non-profit, where she helped social start-ups scale their ideas. During her time at Ashoka, Olina wrote on welfare policy and skill development for Forbes, Yourstory and The Wire. With The Ken, she is getting back to journalism and writing. Based in Delhi, Olina writes about mega-trends in urban mobility, education, skilling and the environment, with a focus on how institutions and innovations can help cities grow sustainably. Despite her Delhi upbringing, Olina says her true heart lies in a cracking South Indian breakfast.
