WHO WE ARE

Persian Women in Tech is an organization dedicated to celebrating and empowering Persian, Middle Eastern and North African (MENA) women in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) fields from all across the Globe's landscape who are engineers, technologists, founders, intrapreneurs, entrepreneurs and investors.

Our technology landscape would not exist without the contributions of incredible tech female pioneers throughout history—and the communities and teachers who support them.

When we all support, assist, and encourage women's achievements, incredible things happen, and new ground is broken.

IT ALL STARTS WITH YOU

It is now more important than ever for women and people of color to be given access to opportunities to showcase their talent and entrepreneurial spirit. Persian and MENA Women across the world are starting successful companies and creating innovative technologies that are quite literally changing the Tech industry—challenging negative stereotypes about their community and bringing their own seat to the table.”
