The mission of HEROINE is a podcast that shares real, deep, and meaningful stories from creative women leaders about their personal and professional journeys. By providing inspirational and practical content to our audience, we help close the gender gap in fields where science and art intersect such as design, tech, and business. Creative women leaders on the podcast have also been featured in The New York Times, Forbes, TechCrunch, TED, Fast Company, GigaOm, The Wall Street Journal, O, The Oprah Magazine, Refinery29, CreativeMornings, and The Great Discontent. They include designers, photographers, writers, artists, founders, authors, and record-breaking adventurettes.

We’ve gathered the heroine journeys of 30+ top creative leaders in design, arts, tech, and business with headliners like author and activist Isabel Allende, fashion icon Eileen Fisher, design educator Debbie Millman, letterer Jessica Hische, and New York Times award-winning photojournalist Lynsey Addario. Since the show began, we've published at least 60 shows and have received more than 300 five-star reviews.

At the core of everything we do is sharing women’s stories with thousands of creative, female listeners around the world. We want these stories to broaden their reach —which is why we're looking for a Social Media & Marketing Intern who can help us scale our impact.
