If 70% of the PR industry is made up of women, why are 30% of PR executives men? The SHEQUALITY Podcast, by The PR Council, is a weekly show dedicated to the important issues facing women in the workplace. Hosted by PRC Board Member, Lee Caraher, we interview a senior woman in PR to talk current events, leadership and careers. Our goal: helping women to rise to the executive ranks.
2018 SHEQUALITY Review (Feat. Lee Caraher)
Today we look back on one incredible year of the SHEQUALITY Podcast. We’ve welcomed so many influential PR professionals to the show and hosted lively discussions on an array of hot topics. So what does the new year hold for SHEQUALITY and the future of the PR industry? Tune in and find out.
Get Some Swagger and Other Steps Women Can Take To Get Ahead (Feat. Dale Bornstein)
Today we’re re-casting Dale Bornstein’s awesome episode from earlier this year. Dale shares so many stories from her own career about what works and what doesn’t and how to get past conscious and unconscious gender bias in the workplace. We first recorded this episode on the International Day of the Women – what we hoped was a watershed moment towards a more equitable workplace for all women. Well, 7 months later with countless #MeToo and #TimesUp episodes, a contentious and controversial confirmation for Justice Kavanaugh, and now at least 103 women elected to the House of Representatives (84 was the previous high, and 2 races with women in them have yet to be called), it looks like that watershed moment, will extend for a while longer.
Debunking the Billy Graham Rule (Feat. Sandra Fathi)
Today we’re re-casting one of our first episodes with Sandra Fathi to get a double dose of her career wisdom. As Sandra shares, “No one is going to work harder for you than you.” So, on the eve of Thanksgiving, plan to take some time this weekend to reflect on your year, and ponder the next. And in the light of all that has happened with #MeToo, the “Billy Graham Rule” in our culture, have you felt at a disadvantage? At an advantage? What do you want 2019 to look like, and how will you work hard on your own behalf?
Woke At Work (Feat. Donna LaVoie)
Megyn Kelly recently discovered just how quickly a few comments can radicalize people. Lee and Donna LaVoie share their thoughts on the backlash surrounding Ms. Kelly. Everyone has unconscious biases – don’t they? How can you discover your own? And more importantly how do change them once you know they exist.
Happy Anniversary #MeToo (Feat: Matt Harrington)
Anniversaries give us cause to stop and reflect on a specific moment in our life. Some can be good, others bad - but all cause us to pause. Lee and Matt Harrington celebrate the one-year anniversary of the #MeToo Movement today and look forward to a more diverse future both for the individuals directly effected and the business world at large.
The Captain Goes Crazy (Feat: Annie Scranton)
Is the CEO expected to be the moral compass of a company? What if that CEO tends to have a YOLO mentality about life? This week Lee welcomes her guest Annie Scranton to discuss the recent drama surrounding Tesla’s CEO Elon Musk.
Loving this new podcast. Great female leaders, tips and timely topics!
Such a necessary podcast for the entire PR industry
I’m really grateful to the PR Council for creating this podcast - it’s touching on topics that the entire industry, not just women, will benefit from listening to. The episodes aren’t too long and the topics are, for lack of a better word, topical.
