To celebrate International Women’s Day #IWD2021 we have a special podcast takeover episode from our inspirational Leaders Plus Fellows.
BBC journalist and Leaders Plus Fellow Kirstie Brewer interviews BBC Three and BBC News Assistant Editor Kim Rowell about taking maternity leave, returning to work, and “things I’d tell my pregnant self”.
They discuss why kindness – or more importantly fairness – underpins Kim’s leadership style. How she has successfully navigated redundancy and why all the best things have happened in Kim’s career since giving birth to her daughter.
With special thanks to the following Leaders Plus Fellows for producing this episode:
Kirstie Brewer, Journalist at BBC News
Melanie Sethi, Senior Internal Communications Manager, BT
Victoria Moore, Transformation Lead, Imperial College Healthcare NHS
Dr Kathrine Badcock Health Policy and Improvement Fellow, The Shelford Group
