Her Story, Podcast by WBN

In 2020, while the pandemic was hitting the entire globe, we decided to reunite students around our brand new podcasts. We invited powerful women from around the world to share their paths, lessons learned, and their tips for young students. Sadly enough, this years’ graduates, and more than a couple additional generations, will start off their career in a working world still full of inequalities. We hope that with these podcasts, our listeners dare to follow their ambitions and don’t hold back.
