“An audacious, inspiring, and practical book about how to drive meaningful change. Leila shows how it’s possible to build a successful business that lifts people out of poverty—not by giving them money but by giving them work. It’s required reading for anyone who’s passionate about solving real problems.”
—Adam Grant, author of Give and Take and Originals; coauthor (with Sheryl Sandberg) of Option B
“Living-wage digital work targeted to the world’s poorest people is a transformational force for good. Leila’s pioneering work in this realm is as instructive as it is inspiring. An essential read!”
—Reid Hoffman, cofounder of LinkedIn; coauthor of The Alliance: Managing Talent in the Networked Age
“Leila Janah’s new book is a call to action to focus on the poor not as passive recipients waiting for charity but as full human beings wanting to solve their own problems. She reminds us through powerful examples that we can all do more to enable human flourishing. And so we must.”
—Jacqueline Novogratz, CEO, Acumen
“Leila Janah’s journey shows how a passion for bringing people out of poverty, a focus on education and living-wage jobs, and an entrepreneurial spirit can change the world for the better. Give Work is an honest, inspirational guide that every business can follow to create positive social impact.”
—Marc Benioff, chairman and CEO, Salesforce
Give Work is required reading for anyone who wants to make a difference in the world.”
