Last week, SuperSoul TV -- thoughtful programming from the Oprah Winfrey Network -- released its SUPERSOUL 100 List. According to the site, the list is "a collection of 100 awakened leaders who are using their voices and talent to elevate humanity."

Included on this prestigious list, along with CEO of Linkedin Jeff Weiner and Editor-in-Chief of The Huffington Post Ariana Huffington, are two YEC members. Learn more about them, below.
