Good episode? Give it some love!
What do you do when you have an entrepreneur’s brain, a charitable heart, singer’s soul and public speaker’s confidence? Change the world of course. Megha Desai is the possessor of all these gifts and the one who leverages them to help empower women and children all over the world. 

Megha is president of the Desai Foundation, a public foundation that aims to elevate the health and livelihood of women and children through community programs in the U.S. and India. The programs they fund and facilitate range from menstrual health and hygiene to hard skills and computer science. All in the name of what Megha calls cultivating dignity. 

Megha began her career in marketing and advertising, achieving incredible success in her field, which led her ultimately to founding her own marketing agency. Her true passion to help others found a way of creeping into most of her projects as she helped clients develop programs with purpose and focus on more holistic outcomes. Eventually the growth of the foundation and the pull of helping communities here and abroad brought Megha to a crossroads. With a new board of directors in place and an opportunity to develop more impactful programs through the auspices of the foundation, she put her private career on hold and agreed to run the foundation. For a year.  

That was a little over four years ago. All of Megha’s energy, intellect, passion and enthusiasm is now poured into her work with the foundation. And the skills she developed in private industry enabled her to see process and outcomes differently than most.
