I'm Ravi Mulani and I've been a Watsi writing volunteer since this previous June (over 60 profiles!). I work full-time at LinkedIn in Business Operations, where I work on strategy and analytics for customer experience. Previously, I worked as an investment banker at Goldman Sachs focusing on Financial Institutions.
I've spent time working in India, China, and Latin America, where I developed an interest in global development issues. I've had a longstanding interest in public policy issues and inequality, and wrote over 40 editorials for the Harvard Crimson focusing on issues spanning humanitarian crises to gender equality and monetary policy. My writing has been featured by USAID and Sepia Mutiny.
To me, global development starts with high-quality healthcare. I've seen firsthand, as I'm sure many others have, how a healthcare crisis can cause enormous problems and dislocation, and I'm very grateful that my family has been able to afford quality treatment. I want to make sure others have that same access, and to help the system become a force for good instead of an impediment to progress. I was inspired to volunteer with Watsi after reading Mountains beyond Mountains about the work of Paul Farmer, and could not be more excited to continue to forward the mission of life-changing healthcare for individuals across the world.
