STEMM Profile: Dr Shokoufeh Malekjani | Engineer and Entrepreneur | Diverse Village | USA

Shokoufeh MDr Shokoufeh Malekjani is a metallurgical engineer and founder of Diverse Village. Shokoufeh completed her BSc and MSc in Iran majoring in metallurgy before moving to Australia to do a PhD and postdoctoral fellowship.

It was through her journey in a white male-dominated environment where she discovered the faulty infrastructure being unable to fit in people who are different from prevailing culture and that discovery has formed the foundation for Diverse Village with a core mission to promote diversity. Diverse Village is a space for digital savvy and professional diverse women to celebrate their authenticity and explore empowerment.

Shokoufeh has been an Affiliate with Women in STEMM Australia, focussed on raising awareness of culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) women in STEMM. Being an engineer and scientist, she has a deeply rooted passion to work with and for women in engineering in particular, and in STEMM in general. Her goal is to empower, educate and inspire. Shokoufeh recently relocated to the USA.
