Diversity Inspires is the brand new Podcast of AIESEC in Germany. AIESEC is made of diversity, it is built on diversity. It is all over the world a platform that promotes diversity. First, AIESEC is an organization where you can find all kinds of personalities, all kinds of people, that work together aiming for a common goal: promoting exchange and creating better leaders for tomorrow.Then, AIESEC in Germany is an entity that is in the meantime very professional, and very passionate, and reflects the German culture a lot in its way of doing things. The diversity we have has been inspiring to me personally. It inspired me to create a brand new podcast for AIESEC in Germany. Each week from January to March, we will be inviting guests who have been in AIESEC, or not, to talk about career, about fears, about building a business, about diversity itself, about art, about smartphones... The program is very diverse and aims to inspire you, wherever you are! This is your host, Mourad. I have been in AIESEC in Germany for more than four years, and this is my Legacy.Credits: - Podcast Jingle specially made from the Sojourner´s dream, a group formed by members of our organization: https://go.aiesec.de/Tobi_Connor
