Persian Women in Tech is a US Non-Profit 501(c)(3) Organization established on March 29, 2015 in Silicon Valley with a mission to connect, mentor, and empower Persian, Middle Eastern & North African (MENA) Women in Technology globally.

With over 15,000 ++ members 90% of our community is technical including engineers, technologists, founders, intrapreneurs, entrepreneurs and investors.

We want our women and girls all over the world, regardless of what the media, flawed societal narratives, and unfounded perceptions, have the equal opportunity to THRIVE.

As technology becomes more integrated in our society and creates a new paradigm, it is up to us to be intentional about equity, inclusion, and diverse representation in the space.


Ama La Vida is a personal and professional development company with a focus on Purpose-driven engagement. While loving life (the meaning of our name) and feeling a sense of purpose at work may have been a luxury for previous generations, they are now non-negotiable. Working just to pay the bills isn’t enough – employees want meaning, impact and fulfillment in their lives and careers. We help them accomplish this through leadership coaching, workshops and transformational programs.

Coupling Ama La Vida’s proprietary eCoaching technology with one-one-one coaching by its team of certified coaches, Ama La Vida is able to deliver valuable coaching engagements at scale. While previously reserved for the C-suite, Ama La Vida’s coaching and programs are affordable and accessible to emerging leaders and high potentials.

Our eCoaching platform captures insightful data throughout our engagements to not only give you a new glimpse into the motivations and desires of your workforce but also seamlessly measures the impact of our work.

We passionately believe that people don’t quit jobs; they quit bosses. We love to help our clients develop leadership teams which not only retain top talent but inspire them to do their best work.
