About Speaker Sara Safari…

Sara Safari is an author, speaker, mountain climber, college professor, Electrical Engineer and advocate for women empowerment.

Five years ago, she decided to climb and summit Mt. Everest (29000ft) to bring funds and awareness for the girls who become victims of human trafficking or are forced into early marriage. In 2015, during the devastating 7.8 earthquake that hit Nepal, she survived the avalanches on Mt. Everest and came back down to help the victims and families, 10,000 of whom lost their lives and 100,000 kids lost their homes. She received the award for The Global Citizen from United Nations Association in 2015. She is a board member and director of development in Empower Nepali Girls foundation. She published her book “Follow My Footsteps” last year and dedicated it to the Nepali girls.

The avalanche and the earthquake didn’t stop her… Sara will be the first Iranian in history to climb the Seven Summits, the seven highest peaks in each continent by July 2018. She is climbing on behalf of all the women who don’t have the opportunity to live fully self-expressed around the world. She also has received the award for Outstanding Practice with Broad Impact in the area of women and leadership from International Leadership Association in 2017. She is working on a documentary film with a talented team of directors and producers who have extensive experience working on complex social justice issues.

Testimonials 2

  • “Sara spoke at our corporate event towards the end of 2015. The passion and the dedication that came from her story not only moved our salesforce, but we saw productivity go up by over 25% throughout the rest of the fiscal year. Her personal, moral, and spiritual journey can apply to any group of individuals and any organization looking to be inspired, motivated, or looking for a new direction in both their personal life and their professional life. To think that somebody went through this, survived it, and now we are all able to benefit from her words is a tremendous opportunity to take advantage of.”

  • “Sara Safari joined us for a remarkable session with our women and allies employee resource group at Liberty Mutual in Boston. We can’t thank her enough for sharing her incredible experiences and empowering stories with us. I think all of us in the audience were profoundly and positively impacted by her inspirational words. That evening I ordered a copy of her book Follow my Footsteps which was also fantastic. I strongly recommend it to all. I sincerely hope we have another opportunity to have Sara return to Liberty Mutual so more of our colleagues get a chance to see and hear her for themselves.”
