Somya Munjal is an Indian-American whose journey to social entrepreneurship began with her mother in India who, as a child, ended up living in extreme poverty during the partition. When Somya’s family migrated to the US, they were met with new experiences of racism and systemic economic challenges which fostered a burning desire to work for the economic empowerment of the disenfranchised and youth education. Today Somya leads several social enterprises, including CPA for the People, Youthful Savings, Audacious Endeavors, and the Youthful Savings Foundation. Somya is the author of Audacious Endeavors: 8 Steps to Social Consciousness that will Spark Your Inner Fire.

In this podcast, Somya discusses why she believes social conscious businesses are crucial in shifting the trajectory of the world and recommends how marketers can help. She tells us why she believes youth development is important for economic change, and introduces many of the tools for building socially conscious businesses that are detailed in her new book.
