Her Impact podcast is here changing our blog completely. You may have the question ‘why‘ in your mind.
Well, you changed as a natural new step towards our one year anniversary. The end of October is our first year and we wanted to involve in this new podcast.
The aim is to provide the same content in video form but also enriched it with interviews. Her Impact will host scientists that want to talk about their impact on the world.
One significant aim of the podcast is to showcase the importance of science in our daily and working life.
It is a statistical fact that academic positions are mainly filled with men. On the contrary, graduates are mostly women. Her Impact Podcast wants to become the voice of women in STEM but mostly women in sciences.
Here we want to host women who want to share their own journey in science and employment. However, we are not here to criticize rather inform about their challenges.
We recognize that all women have experienced injustice in any workplace. Yet science is very difficult employment and most difficult in a successful career. Therefore women are facing difficulties in employment and achievements.
For many months now we have considered this podcast.
My personal ambition for years now is to publicize the obstacles that women in STEM are facing.
My personal journey is the only factor driving me to create this platform. But it was not a few weeks ago that I took the leap of faith to do so.
I attended a training seminar you see and I met a woman there who said she was reading my blog (always scared when people say that). She mentioned she liked the content but the grammar was not of her taste. I just felt disappointed.
So I said to myself make it bigger or go home. And that led to today: launching ‘Her Impact’ podcast. Even though I know that my grammar is quite the same, I only feel so much pride. Maybe because my mission is clear in my mind.
