Podcast of the month

Our chosen podcast of the month for June is here! This month, it comes in the form of this little gem; HERE SHE IS. This podcast brings us the minds of 3 sisters; Julia, Sarah and Ronja Wagner. Between them, they have created a platform to interview Female, Transgender and Male leaders to discuss their common conclusion; that women can often undersell themselves and don't think big enough.

This podcast discusses the issues in society today that fuel this culture and what needs to be done to solve the gender equality gap, whilst empowering women to 'think big, act bold, and beware of bias'.

You can find this podcast by searching 'here she is' on your podcast app of choice, every third Thursday of each month. Or you can start now by subscribing for free and delving back into the many existing episodes!
