Shriya Bhattacharya is a journalist at Business Insider covering the creator economy from a diversity, equity, and inclusion lens. Before pursuing journalism, she worked for the United Nations Foundation's global sexual and reproductive healthcare initiative. She first started reporting in March 2020 during the lockdown in Washington, D.C. She has written over 60 articles for publications including Teen Vogue, Prism, and Ms. Magazine.

Shriya seeks to create tangible change for marginalized communities through her writing. She became a journalist because she noticed a severe lack of diversity in US newsrooms, which adversely impacts accurate and thoughtful reporting on people of color.

Shriya graduated magna cum laude from Agnes Scott College in 2018 with a B.A. in international relations and dance. Born and raised in the US, she's also lived in India and Belgium and has traveled to 18 other countries. She's currently based in New York City.
