The Broad Experience is an online audio show and podcast that offers intelligent conversation, personal stories, new ideas - and a little attitude - on the subject of women in the workplace. We take a journalistic eye to a rich and controversial topic. Smart, influential guests of both sexes weigh in. You can tune in here or subscribe to the show on iTunes. You'll find the most recent episode a little further down the page. See above for previous episodes and a bit about your host, Ashley Milne-Tyte. Read the latest posts about the show and all things women-and-work at the Broadly Speaking blog. Here's a quick introduction.
So far we've covered topics such as women, ambition and power, how race can play out at work, whether the glass ceiling still exists and whether female entrepreneurship is all it's cracked up to be.
The show aims to help women succeed and thrive in the modern workplace. Can we solve your every work/life conundrum? I wish. Still, we do inform, entertain and occasionally inspire while giving listeners insights into important issues surrounding women and their careers - issues you won't always have thought much about before.
Women still have a very different experience of work than men. They're doing brilliantly in the education system and out-graduating guys. But they still make up a tiny percentage of top executives. Sure, not everyone wants those jobs. We all define success differently, and having a sane, balanced existence is important to a lot of us. But many women are ambitious, yet we don't quite reach our full potential. There are many reasons why. Often they are boiled down to one thing: babies. It's more complicated - and interesting - than that.
The workplace needs to change and so do we. Join the conversation.
