Covalent openly prides itself on being an equal opportunity employer and recognizes that women are widely underrepresented within the technology sector. In light of this, Covalent wishes to celebrate its women-in-tech role models, and bring visibility to the diverse career paths available to women in Web3.
Quote from Elizabeth Hamel-Pageau, Operations Manager
“ Introducing more women to the tech space allows us to innovate from a broader lens of ideas and perspectives. That’s why Covalent proactively seeks out women-in-tech hiring events and supporting communities.

Tanisha Bhanot - Graphic Designer
Tanisha was the first person in her family to pursue a career in design, an unconventional role for women in her home country of India. She recalls an extremely skewed ratio of men to women studying Graphic Design at her school, and even fewer women pursuing a career in the technology sector. After graduating from Symbiosis Institute of Design, with a Bachelor's Degree in Design, Tanisha continued to break convention and interned at several technology companies, before eventually discovering Covalent.
As a Graphic Designer, Tanisha creates beautiful visual concepts to communicate Covalent’s vision and stories to the world. As one of the first ten employees at Covalent, Tanisha has played an integral role in cultivating our brand. Her highlights include championing our well-known #OneMillionWallets campaign, creating the design language for our global Alchemist community program, and designing the stunning POAPs and NFTs that Covalent uses in its marketing efforts.
Tanisha’s stunning body of work includes many popular Covalent and Alchemist NFTs and POAP designs.
