CEO & Founder

Paria Rajai began her work on diversity initiatives nearly a decade ago designing global women in tech events with Yahoo.  Since then, Paria led the marketing team at Hackbright Academy - the country’s first coding school for women - working to connect companies such as Amazon, Yelp and Slack with more women engineers. She also helped organize the inaugural Women of MENA in Tech Conference in Silicon Valley and has been selected as a mentor for the State Department’s TechWomen program. Paria was recently profiled in Forbes for being a leader and advocate in the world of tech, marketing and diversity.  As tech continues to grow at a rapid pace, her goal is to ensure individuals from all backgrounds are included in the process.
