Seneca Women, iHeart Launch Fem-Focused Podcasts


Seneca Women Podcast Network and iHeartMedia have inked a new multi-year partnership to co-produce and distribute a slate of women-focused podcasts focused on such subjects as women in business, leadership, current events, health and more, “providing inspiring, purpose-driven and actionable content from a diverse range of women’s voices.”

As part of the partnership, new and existing podcasts on the Seneca Women Podcast Network — which recently launched with support of founding partner P&G — will join the iHeartPodcast Network.

iHeartMedia will now co-produce the hit podcast series “Seneca Women Conversations on Power and Purpose” hosted by Ambassador Melanne Verveer and Kim Azzarelli.

“Seneca Women Conversations on Power and Purpose” debuted Monday (3/9) on iHeartRadio with 19 episodes in celebration of the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment.

“Seneca Women Conversations on Power and Purpose,” which features fascinating conversations with leaders who are using their power for purpose to accelerate women while building a better world, includes conversations with luminaries such as Tory Burch, Arianna Huffington, former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, Katie Couric, UN Women Executive Director Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka and Grameen America CEO Andrea Jung, among others. Kicking off on International Women’s Day, special episodes will air as part of the Sunday Night Podcast series across iHeartMedia broadcast stations nationwide throughout March honoring Women’s History Month, exposing these powerful stories to millions of listeners across the country.

The Seneca Women Podcast Network launched earlier this year by Seneca Women, a global women’s leadership platform. The new podcast network builds on Seneca Women’s thought leadership and its founders’ decades of experience in advancing women around the globe. It focuses on a diverse range of topics that showcase positive role models, practical insights and shared learnings, while providing a platform for the voices of established and emerging women leaders as well as organizations making a difference for women and girls.

“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,” said Kim Azzarelli, co-founder and 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.”
