Meet The Team
Kamalika Dasgupta is the founder of SheQu Group Inc. She is an Accountant and business advisor by trade, and an alumna from Macquarie University. She is not only a passionate advocate of Equality, but she is also a passionate speaker.
After migrating to Australia for her higher studies at the age of 24, she decided to get more involved with LGBT+ community, to explore her sexual identity as a Queer Women from Ethnic background. However, most of the organisations that she came across were either primarily dominated by males and or else they lacked input from same-sex attracted multicultural women.
So, drawing on her business acumen, analytical skills, personal migration experiences and hardships, she founded “SheQu Group Inc”, in December 2018 with the mission to help, support and promote LGBT+ women from culturally and linguistically diverse background.
She has worked with different organisations in volunteer and advisor capacity. She has travelled Australia wide either as a guest speaker or as a panellist, to empower queer women from ethnic background.
Her mission through SheQu is to Encourage, Empower & Enable LGBT + Women from ethnic background, by inspiring and giving them a voice.
She was nominated as one of the four finalists of NSW Young Achiever Award 2018. She has been also nominated by Probono Australia for Pro Bono Australia’s 2018 Impact 25.
Manjusha Merrymaker has an educational background in psychology, and work experience in project and change management across a variety of industries.
As a Coach and Consultant, she is passionate about leadership development and the potential that self-empowerment and collective dialogue bring in creating meaningful change, personal fulfillment and improving business outcomes.

Her vision is that SheQu reaches and impacts as many QWOC possible so that as they join the network, they join a group which truly understand and knows how to navigate the same struggles they go through. As they empower themselves to break down the barriers and bridge the gap, formed by the discrimination they often face. .
