Since 2012, the Iranian American Women Foundation (IAWF) has set the stage to empower and inspire Iranian American women of all ages and career paths through its nationally recognized annual Women’s Leadership Conferences. Thanks to the efforts of the community, the IAW Foundation has expanded its philanthropic efforts on a variety of programs to benefit the community it is serving. The newly added IAWF programs include Circle of Visionaries, Circle of Caring, Youth Leadership Conference, and Mentorship program. The goal is to provide a platform for IAWF members to expand on their professional and personal growth. We encourage potential members of IAWF and our local chapter’s community members to join us on this journey.

Join Us March 28-30, 2019 in San Francisco for “Forty Years and More: International Conference on Iranian Diaspora Studies” for Keynotes, Panel Discussions, and two major exhibitions of Iranian Diaspora Art.
The conference will mark the anniversary of the 1979 Iranian Revolution by understanding the ways that Iranians as exiles, immigrants, and as second and third generation hyphenated citizens of their respective nations, have met with both challenges and opportunities of diaspora experience. Conference presentations in the arts, humanities, and social sciences will present new scholarship and research about the Iranian diaspora from a variety of perspectives and national contexts.
Conference speakers include Dr. Neda Maghbouleh, Dr. Amy Malek, Dr. Shiva Balaghi, and many others.
A forthcoming feature-length documentary tracing the story of the 1953 Anglo American coup in Iran and overthrow of Mossadegh.
