For our last episode of this season, we’re passing the mic to our listeners. We asked women from our global community how they’re planning to make the world less tilted in 2021, and today, you'll hear from two of them—Ifeoma Finnih and Jen Shyu. Ifeoma works in investment banking and wants to demystify the industry, so more women find their way to careers in finance. Jen is an experimental musician and is building a powerful support network for underrepresented musicians, which is especially important during COVID-19. They're both paving the way for the next generation and they're doing it with gusto. These conversations gave us a huge boost, and we hope they do the same for you.
