“My contribution to the company’s mission goes beyond just business; it aligns with a greater purpose. My personal life goals seamlessly intertwine with the company’s mission.

I want to challenge those limitations and prove that ‘I can, SHE can.'” Sanjana Desai, Executive Director, Mother’s Recipe.
