We are actively working to have our public roster current with Keynote Speech titles, and Summaries. Some Speakers do not have a set title or summary for programs. Instead they customize for each. Other speakers only do moderated conversations. If you do not see content here, please contact us. We also have ample information off line that we can share. Or in the event we do not have the information, we can contact the speaker to provide and share.

About Keynote Speaker Leila Janah

About Speaker Leila Janah…

Leila Janah is the founder of Samasource, an award-winning social business that connects people living in poverty to microwork — small, computer-based tasks that build skills and generate life-changing income. Janah is a frequent speaker on social entrepreneurship and technology, and her work has been profiled by CBS, CNN, NPR, the BBC, The New York Times, and The New Scientist. She received the World Technology Award for Social Entrepreneurship in 2010, and in 2009 was named one of Fast Company’s Most Innovative Women in Tech.
Janah was a Visiting Scholar with the Stanford Program on Global Justice and Australian National University’s Center for Applied Philosophy and Public Ethics.
Leila Janah’s speeches often reflect her passion for helping others, which came to her at an early age. After winning a scholarship at the age of 16, she convinced Harvard University to allow her to postpone her entry and teach English in Africa.

In 2005, she graduated with a BA in African Development Studies. In 2007, she was a visiting scholar at Stanford University where she co-founded Incentives for Global Health with professors from various universities, successfully establishing an incentives program in the development of new drugs that cared for the once neglected diseases.
