Being a hub of innovation and startups, California was the place for Divershefy to expand its presence in the North American market. The diversity of knowledge and experiences along with the growing presence of women at different leadership levels, motivated our team to expand our Divershefy family in the area.

We hope that with our presence in the region many women entrepreneurs and business leaders can get access to a forum of networking and support. We plan to share our vast network of mentors and investors thereby enabling women professional to not only realize their goals but take their entrepreneurial aspirations to the next level.

Divershefy is a bridge between the unmet needs of professionals and executives who want to contribute on their own terms and companies that embrace diversity and varied perspectives at their Board/CxO levels.

With our thriving women’s and investor network, we bring together qualified board ready women with investors who want to increase the number of women on Boards and in C-Suites and companies who choose to diversify their leadership.
