“The good news is that the self-sovereign identity world is starting to address those problems in collaboration with GLEIF, the Global Legal Entity Identity Foundation”
For the past 15 years, she has been working to catalyse the creation of a layer of identity for people based on open standards. She co-founded the Internet Identity Workshop (IIW) in 2005 to bring together technologists who want to see decentralised identity come into being. In the fifteen years their community has been meeting, they have created standards being used all over the internet, like OpenID Connect and OAuth. In 2012 she was recognised as a Young Global Leader by the World Economic Forum.
The next IIW is in April. Sign up on Eventbrite.
Kaliya is widely recognised for her community leadership. She travels to Africa and Asia at least once a year to ensure the development of person-centric identity is truly global and inclusive. Most recently, she co-founded HumanFirst.Tech with Shireen Mitchell, a project focused on creating space for diverse voices and building a more inclusive industry.
In 2009, she was named one of Fast Company’s Most Influential Women in Technology.
