Bailey Farren

Founder and CEO



Nominated by Steve Westly

Bailey Farren is the CEO and co-founder of Perimeter, an organization dedicated to disaster preparedness and response. After her family had to evacuate during California’s 2017 Tubbs Fire, Bailey discovered that public safety had been using antiquated technology to contain the most devastating disasters we have seen to date. The daughter of two first responders, Bailey strives to empower citizens and public safety agencies with the tools and information necessary to prepare for, respond to, and recover from the unprecedented emergencies of our times.

After graduating from UC Berkeley in 2019, Bailey applied her background in data science and passion for climate action to create an organization whose mission considers the technological, natural, and human factors involved in living symbiotically with our rapidly changing environment.
