Media x Women, the independent organisation dedicated to women on the rise in media, has scooped two Signal Awards for Excellence in Podcasting.
How She Made It, a show that amplifies the accomplishments of women across the media industry, won two gongs in the Education category – the gold Listener’s Choice award determined by public voting, and bronze from the Signal Academy judges.
With the Education category, the Signal Awards – which honours and celebrates people and content that raise the bar for podcasting – recognises shows that educate their listeners through narrative, interviews, reviews, conversations, or other formats.
Hosted by Sonia Case, the How She Made It series – which is available on Apple, Spotify, Audible and Google – features women who share their career path experiences and offer advice to help future media makers and managers.
Guests have included Hillary Cutter, Founder and Executive Producer at Cutter Entertainment; Helene Estes, Coordinator at MediaLink; and New York-based writer and director, Iris Dukatt.
“The Media x Women team is humbled and overjoyed to be honoured by the Signal Judging Academy and fans of ‘How She Made It,’ within a category of finalist shows produced by Duolingo, John Hopkins University, Purdue University, and SUNY,” said Linda Saint Marc, Media x Women founder and executive producer of the podcast.
“‘How She Made’ It is made possible by a talented collective with a shared thought leadership perspective and conviction to be the meaningful change we seek in the media industry through equity, diversity and inclusion. These esteemed recognitions reinforce our belief that the stories and insights we publish are both important and impactful in the world.”
