Screen Shot 2014-11-17 at 9.39.41 PMOn October 6, 2014, I shared the launch of #50shows with my blog community. I’ve been working Jim Nico and Dr. Jane Karwoski of the Social Network Station to create awareness around a movement, giving women a voice and a platform via 50 Internet radio shows. At the same time, when women are underrepresented in the media, our initiative helps women to gain valuable media skills.

Today is a special day for me as I move to a new forum myself and pledge my commitment to the first of the #50Shows. I’m officially launching “Women Worldwide, with Deirdre Breakenridge.” My podcast program will be dedicated to women sharing their incredible stories in business and life. It’s an opportunity to educate, impart advice and share insights with others from the greatest highs of success to the lowest points of defeat.

My first two guests will be recorded this week and I’m really excited to be announcing their names and interviews very soon on my radio show page via the Social Network Station. You can check out the show page here.  I’m thrilled to be launching my new show and I’d like to invite women around the world to discuss their stories all in an effort to educate others.

I look forward to sharing more about my show. Please let me know if you’ve connected with any wonderful women who may want to be guests interviewed on Women Worldwide.

Thank you!

    I think that this is an exciting step forward. Women are underrepresented in so many different fields. Media, politics/government positions, science and technology fields, etc. Giving women a platform, such as your podcast, is crucial in breaking traditional stereotypes and making a true difference in how women are represented. So many studies have shown the impact that places where women are educated and given equal rights are generally healthier, stable, and more successful than places where women are treated as second-class citizens. By including women, giving them a voice, and ensuring that they are well represented in all fields is necessary for an effective society.

  4. Thank you, Lauren. I really appreciate your comment. My team has been working hard to highlight many great, accomplished women through my show, Women Worldwide. I truly believe that giving women a voice and a platform (especially through media) will help to change how we’re represented across industries and different societies. Unfortunately, the number of women in media is down and this is something that we must work toward changing quickly. The more our voices are amplified through the media, the greater the representation will be. Of course, at the same time, it’s refreshing to know that every voice has the potential to help, educate or motivate someone else. Thanks again for sharing your thoughts!
