Announcing our new ‘Extraordinary Ordinary’ Podcast
3rd August 2021 by Natalie Burns
We are delighted to announce the The ‘Extraordinary Ordinary’ Women of the Year Podcast: an inspiring celebration of ordinary women doing extraordinary things. Building on our history of recognising, celebrating and inspiring women of all backgrounds since 1955, each episode will see women from all walks of life share their incredible stories in candid interviews. We will be honouring those who quietly make a huge difference to our world.
Episodes will also include well known Women of the Year supporters explaining why the Women of the Year Lunch is one of their favourite events of the year. The podcast will launch in Autumn 2021.
