Celebrating International Women’s Day: Female Podcasters Leading the Conversation
International Women’s Day (IWD) is a global celebration of women’s economic, political and social achievements while also focusing on advancing gender equality.
This year’s theme is #EmbraceEquity. The IWD #EmbraceEquity campaign aims to get the world talking about why equal opportunities aren’t enough. Everyone starts from different places in life, so true inclusion and belonging require equitable action.
To mark this year’s event, we’ve taken the time to curate a list of female podcasters who are using their voices to create a positive impact in the world. Let’s make equity part of our society’s DNA and strive for everybody to have access to the same opportunities.
Female podcasters are a powerful force in the podcasting world.
They bring a unique perspective to the medium, offering entertaining and thought-provoking content to listeners worldwide. From lifestyle to true crime, female podcasters provide a wealth of topics and conversations that keep us thinking and engaged.
All IWD activity is valid, so let’s make this year the most inclusive one yet by encouraging female podcasters that use their voices to impact the world positively.
