Podcast is a globe-trotting storytelling project about fearless women who are using the power of sport, education, and social innovation to create a better world.

The Strong Women. Better World Podcast celebrates the 50th anniversary of Title IX by raising awareness of its global footprint ahead of the landmark legislation’s June 2022 commemoration. Through intimate conversations with brave pioneers, listeners will learn about the challenges and successes these Title IX Titans encounter, and better understand the power of people-to-people exchanges through sport.
