Sonal Shah has spent her career both in the private and public sector, including stints with Goldman Sachs, Google.org and The White House. She is currently the CEO of The Texas Tribune, a politics and public policy-specific news organization.
But before embarking on her illustrious career, many years ago, Sonal and I were just two teenagers forced to wake up early and help clean up the Gandhi Centre in Houston, Texas after community events.
In this episode of No-Cost Extension, Sonal and I not only look back and reminisce, but we also talk about the Houston community we grew up in that nurtured so many philanthropic ventures, the need for flexible funding and how it helps build trust and why we need to find the right funding mechanisms for communities.
