Mou Mukherjee is an industry veteran and a friend who is Head of Registry Services at .CLOUD, which is an iQ customer.
I originally approached Mou about doing an interview on the successes and challenges of running a new gTLD registry. At some point during our initial conversation, I recall Mou mentioning her unique experience of "being a woman of color, born in India, raised in Canada, working for an Italian company, and doing business in China."
That's when it hit me. "Mou, I think you have an amazing story to tell that will inspire and help others! We should do an interview that speaks to this! (The irony of me being a male suggesting and then conducting this interview is not lost!)
So this interview is a bit of a departure from the usual. We spend the first half of the discussion going through Mou's early days in the industry, and then her observed successes and challenges of running a registry, etc. The last half is all about her lived experience as a female in the domain industry.
Thank you Mou for opening up the door a bit to your amazing story.
