Co-Founder & CEO
I am here to create big change for women. The greatest way I know how is to help women entrepreneurs.
Darya is passionate about the advancement of women. In 2013, she recruited several colleagues to form Women Founders Network (WFN). Subsequently, Darya founded the nonprofit Women Founders Foundation (WFF) in 2017, with a mission of educating women and girls about entrepreneurship. In 2008, Darya founded Broads Circle, an executive level women's networking group with a focus on money and power for women.
Darya has been recognized for her community work and the advancement of women by the LABJ and California Women Lead. She currently serves on the Boards of the Los Angeles Westside YMCA and the Los Angeles Chapter of Advisors in Philanthropy (LA-AiP).
