Ziba Mahdavi

Managing Director

I have been the managing director for KIPAC since 2006, shortly after KIPAC’s formation. Together with KIPAC directors, we have made KIPAC a well-known and respected institute. Prior to joining KIPAC, I was a project manager, working with SLAC Business Administration, planning, organizing and managing SLAC’s online business applications.

My work and personal philosophy is based on respect and inclusion. Through out my tenure as the managing director, I have endeavored to create an inviting workplace where anyone regardless of their position, race, gender or sexual orientation is welcomed and respected. I received my MBA from UCB.
