Leila Janah, Founder and CEO of Samasource; Co-Founder and CEO of LXMI; Author, Give Work: Reducing Poverty One Job at a Time

Laura d'Andrea Tyson, Ph.D, Distinguished Professor of the Graduate School at the Haas School of Business — UC Berkeley

According to serial social entrepreneur Leila Janah, giving work is the most effective means of reducing poverty, and she and her company, Samasource, are a big part of the solution. Janah and her team have gone into some of the world’s poorest communities — from right here in California all the way to Kenya — and trained individuals in digital work for tech titans like Google and Microsoft. Samasource’s model, which addresses the causes, not just the symptoms, of poverty, gives work, not aid, helping individuals access dignified, steady, fair-wage work and ensuring they can gain the tools to change their own lives for the better.

Janah’s new book Give Work: Reducing Poverty One Job at a Time, shares the stories of those who have benefitted from Samasource’s groundbreaking business model and demonstrates how entrepreneurs and individuals can be a part of the movement to eradicate poverty across the globe.

Join Janah and moderator Laura D. Tyson of the Haas School of Business at the University of California, Berkeley and an expert in the field of global economics, for an insightful and impactful conversation on innovative ways to reverse global poverty.
