“Five Poverty-Fighting Women to Watch” #hwhtw @Daily_Good @AshleyJudd @leila_c @Samasource @pooreconomics @jnovogratz @acumenfund @hpglobalcitizen

A fantastic article from Daily Good!  Props to Ashley Judd for retweeting.

“These five women are fighting poverty in a serious way, but they’re not handing out aid. We hope to see them scale up their models this year and make an even bigger impact.”

Here’s the list:

  • Leila Janah of Samasource
  • Esther Duflo of MIT’s Poverty Action Lab (see post: “Women as Policy Makers”)
  • Jacqueline Novogratz of Acumen Fund (one of my favorite speakers from TEDWomen!)
  • Gabi Zedlmayer, leader of Hewlett-Packard’s global social innovations team
  • Shainoor Khoja, who is using technology to address the world’s poverty challenges
