Aurin is the lead for behavioural design at the Social Innovation Lab (SIL), BRAC. She has experience collaborating with different BRAC programmes, and conducting research, experiments and projects across various fields, from reducing gender-based violence in public transport, to scoping for livelihood opportunities in wetlands, to improving hygiene behaviour across contexts. She holds MBA and BBA degrees from IBA, University of Dhaka, and is currently pursuing a Master in Public Policy from Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy in Singapore.

Remember when Segway launched in 2002? It was predicted to revolutionise transportation and hit the $1 billion sales mark faster than any company in history. But by 2010 it had sold less than 30,000 units and was termed as one of the 10 biggest tech failures of the decade.
A total of 47 Bangladeshi development organisations, edupreneurs, social innovators and accelerator programmes joined BRAC's social innovation lab for an intense 90-minute sprint, this September. We brainstormed on how our education system can work for our future, and how we can solve the existing roadblocks.
