Invitation

Meet Kavita Shukla

Sahasra Deepika is honored to have Kavita Shukla speak at our Leaders Light the Way event. Kavita Shukla began taking on the massive global challenge of food waste with Fresh Paper, a simple innovation for keeping food fresh. FreshPaper started as Kavita’s middle school science project, inspired by a home remedy from her grandmother in India. Kavita first began selling handmade FreshPaper at a local farmer’s market in Cambridge, MA. Today, FreshPaper is used by farmers and families in over 35 countries and is available at retailers nationwide, including Whole Foods, Walmart, HSN, and Bed Bath & Beyond.

Kavita holds four patents and was the youngest woman ever to receive the INDEX Design to Improve Life Award – the world’s largest prize for design, presented by the Crown Princess of Denmark. Her work has been featured by CNN, The New York Times, The Washington Post, Bloomberg, Oprah Magazine, Glamour, and The Today Show. Kavita was also featured as one of the “7 Entrepreneurs Changing the World” by Fast Company, named to TIME Magazine’s “5 Most Innovative Women in Food” list, and featured on the Forbes “30 under 30” list. She holds a BA from Harvard University.


What is Leaders Light the Way?

Leaders Light the Way is a series of events hosted by Sahasra Deepika to celebrate prominent women who epitomize the spirit of resilience, leadership, and hope. Women who have broken barriers and risen to the pinnacle of their fields. Women who’ve led lives of significance and inspire us all. These women represent what we at Sahasra Deepika strive to do: empower girls to productively participate in their communities and shape the future of the world. In October, the event will celebrate 'International Day of the Girl'. The UN developed this movement “to help galvanize worldwide enthusiasm for goals to better girls’ lives, providing an opportunity for them to show leadership and reach their full potential.”

This event is suitable for guests 14 and over.
