Join us today for Women Lead Radio as Michelle Bergquist, your host of Women Who Lead, interviews Sarah Sternberg, Owner and Founder of Songa Designs.

Sarah and Michelle discuss the challenges and success of leaving the safe confines of the corporate world in order to create a business that empowers women worldwide! Sarah built Songa Designs after the 2008 recession and being laid off from the corporate real estate industry. She decided to take a chance, do something unique and volunteered for a nonprofit in Rwanda. 

How many of you have started a business after volunteering for a good cause?  Sarah shares her adventurous journey on not only building her business but the story that goes with helping under-resourced women build a business too!

Songa Designs is a socially conscious, eco-fashion lifestyle brand. Songa exists to create jobs for skilled women in under-resourced countries so they can earn their way to economic independence. Sarah’s vision for empowering women is cultivating a culture of self-sufficient, strong businesswomen in new ways. By providing these women the tools needed to earn their way and prosper in business and entrepreneurship, Songa Designs is building markets and new opportunities in developing countries, all the while empowering the women behind them.

As the CEO and Co-Founder of Connected Women of Influence, Michelle Bergquist is a passionate advocate for women in business. At Connected Women of Influence, we believe that more women need to lead in business and everything we do is center-focused on designing platforms, programs, connections and collaborative opportunities for b2b women to prosper, succeed and lead the way in business today!
