Femme Lead

Who are your role models in your professional life? Join Alexandra Ciobotaru as she interviews leaders from communities around the world and finds inspiring individuals whose career paths will inspire the next generation of leaders. Femme Lead is an initiative created to showcase female role models and start a discussion about navigating the professional path and share advice on lessons learned along the way. Each interview's tone is friendly, warm-hearted, and focuses on key points that give listeners a structure to follow and clear takeaways. Each episode focuses on a different field of work and follows three chapters: upbring & education, career path, and advice.
