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 was on the leadership 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 has worked with employers of various sizes from growing startups to Fortune 500 companies. Paria was recently profiled in Forbes for being a leader in the diversity recruiting space and was nominated for the Women in IT Award in 2018.  As tech continues to grow at a rapid pace, her goal is to ensure individuals from all backgrounds are included in the process.
