According to a Pew Research survey, about 4 in 10 employed women say they have experienced some form of gender discrimination at work.

Brittany Howard and Jennifer Breithaupt: See Her, Hear Her

July 3, 2019

A study by USC Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism found that, across the top 600 songs between 2012 and 2017, women made up only 22%of artists, 12% of songwriters, 3% of engineers, and a mere 2% of producers.

 

To tackle this issue Citi announced the launch of its #SeeHerHearHer program, in partnership with the Association of National Advertisers.

 

The program, which is an extension of Citi’s existing partnership with ANA will address gender bias in music by pairing established female artists with up-and-coming female musicians to serve as mentors.

 

In this episode, we’ll be hearing from Jennifer Breithaupt, Chief Marketing Officer at Citi and Brittany Howard, lead vocalist and guitarist of American rock band Alabama Shakes. Together, they will unpack why gender inequality is a huge issue in the music industry and what can be done to solve it.

Julie Cordua: Fighting Online Child Sexual Abuse

June 26, 2019

Since 2004, reports of child sexual abuse material online have increased by 10,000 percent. This year in the U.S. alone, more than 45 million images and videos of suspected child sexual abuse were reported to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.

The founders learned about the issue from a documentary that highlighted what was happening to children in Cambodia.

On this week’s podcast, you’ll be hearing from Julie Cordua CEO of Thorn — who recently shared the stage with amazing innovators and changemakers at Ted ‘s The Audacious Project. Thorn has been selected as 1 of 8 projects that will share in $280 million in funding to turn their bold mission into reality.

In this episode, Julie shares how Thorn is working to eliminate online child sex abuse. She will also detail the magnitude of the problem they’re solving — and what organizations and parents can do to tackle this issue.

Fashion designer Diane von Furstenberg first shot to fame after designing the iconic wrap dress in the 1970s. Now she runs her global fashion empire, which spans over 70 countries. Diane’s mother first inspired her career ambition, teaching her at a young age that "fear is not an option". This advice has served Diane because despite her success, she says that she has dealt with many failures throughout her career.

In the past decade, Diane Von Furstenberg has recognized and supported women leaders through the annual DVF Awards. Every year, attendees gather and honor women leaders, from survivors of gender based violence, to activists and justice warriors. On the podcast this week, we have the pleasure of hearing from Diane about why she considers the empowerment of women a gift — and what each of us can do to champion the women in our lives.
