About The Podcast

Shero Diaries is an HFS podcast launched in March 2021. As part of the series “Storypod with Nischala – The Shero Diaries,” we speak with influential and powerful women leaders from across the world.

The name is inspired by Shero = SHE + HERO; to indicate that we are all heroes in our own right. In each episode, we profile a corporate shero and you will hear about her personal life and career journey, choices and decisions which influenced her and reflections from these experiences.

To drive IMPACT by seeding thoughts of change
By highlighting issues and ideas around how to build diverse and inclusive organizations, we aspire to catalyse change for good on the case and cause of women at work
