The Empowering Women Podcast is a production of the Empowering Women in Industry organization. We aim to bring the stories of inspiring career women to inspire and encourage the next generation of leaders. In particular, we highlight women in male-dominated fields (such as engineering, manufacturing, construction, etc.), and seek to bring some of the more difficult conversations around workplaces sexism and bias to an open space for exploration.
