Creating Shared Value and Evaluating Social Impact

Friday, March 15, 2013

8:00 am - 5:00 pm


This one-day event will explore how more and more organizations are strategically and profitably reframing products, markets and supply chains to meet social challenges, and rethinking how they demonstrate social impacts.


Leila Janah of SamasourceOur keynote speaker will be Leila Janah, Founder and CEO of Samasource, an innovative social business that connects women and youth living in poverty to dignified work via the Internet. After graduating from Harvard, Leila worked as a consultant with an outsourcing company in India, and at the same time found inspiration from the work of  Muhammed Yunus.  Her "a-ha" moment came after meeting and talking with a young call center worker from Dharavi, the same South Asian slum made famous by the movie "Slumdog Millionaire".  As she listened to his story, she wondered: why not use the outsourcing model to address poverty? 

From those inspirations she founded Samasource, which has set a target of impacting 120,000 women and youth around the world by 2016.   Samasource has also started working with the Bayview District in San Francisco to offer free training to low-income community college students to do online work and earn supplemental income. For her work so far, Leila is the recipient of a 2011 World Technology Award and a 2012 TechFellow Award.
