In celebration of Women’s History Month, iHeartMedia has teamed up with Seneca Women to feature a series of women-focused podcasts, including the weekly “Seneca Women Conversations on Power and Purpose.” The partnerships launched with the support of Seneca Women founding partner P&G.
The multi-year partnership allows the platforms to co-produce and distribute new shows focusing on women in business, leadership, current events and health, among other topics.
The first episode of “Seneca Women Conversations on Power and Purpose” launched Sunday night on the 100th anniversary of women’s suffrage.
The show will run for 19 episodes and features conversations with Tory Burch, Arianna Huffington, Katie Couric and UN Women Executive Director Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka.
“There has never been a more important time for women’s voices to be heard — especially in a year that is marking the 100th anniversary of American women’s suffrage,” stated Kim Azzarelli, cofounder-CEO of Seneca Women. “Through this new partnership with iHeartMedia, we can amplify the voices of established and emerging women leaders and connect millions of women and men around the world with positive, purpose-driven and actionable content.”
Seneca Women, a women’s leadership platform, launched its Seneca Women Podcast Network earlier this year as a means to focus on topics that boost positive role models, practical insights and shared learnings.
In addition to joining iHeartMedia’s podcast network, the series will broadcast across stations nationwide in March.
“Since the Seneca Falls convention of 1848, women in the U.S. have been on a journey to equal rights. That journey continues here and for women around the world,” stated Ambassador Melanne Verveer, chair-cofounder of Seneca Women.
“The recent Global Gender Gap Report from the World Economic Forum predicts it will take another 99 years for us to get to equality. The launch of the Seneca Women Podcast Network and this new partnership with iHeartMedia will help accelerate women’s progress, as we believe progress for women is progress for all.”
