Her Voice Season One: Replay the Five Episodes
With Sandra Rey, Diana Biggs, Aurélie Jean, Amélia Matar, Anisha Goel and Argyro Avgoustaki
For the first episode of Her Voice, ESCP has invited a special guest to talk about her creative solution for something we often take for granted, lighting. Sandra Rey is the founder and CEO of Glowee, a start-up with the ambition to revolutionise the way we light up our spaces and cities thanks to bioluminescence.
A crypto fan since 2013 and currently the CEO of Valour, a digital assets investment platform, Diana Biggs is an expert when it comes to innovation in finance. Together, we discussed the overall evolution of the “crypto craze”, the surging popularity of NFTs (aka Non-Fungible Tokens), and also the challenges facing women in finance.
On the third episode of Her Voice, we had the opportunity to speak with not one but two women experts, Aurélie Jean and Amélia Matar, about their respective fields of artificial intelligence and computer science education for children. Together, we investigated the variety of biases in tech — whether they influence the way algorithms are created, or the number of women in the industry.
When Anisha Goel was confronted with the difficulty of finding fresh local produce in her hometown in India, she decided to create the solution. Building off of her family’s history and her business experience, Anisha and her co-founders are working to uncover new ways of growing healthy, sustainable food and educating consumers on the great products from local farmers.

With the post-Covid workplace under the microscope, Argyro’s expertise gives us a clearer view on the impact of our work cultures on employee well-being.
Her Voice's Mission
Her Voice will provide quality interviews from female leaders who have managed to not only make it into the science and business worlds but to also change the status-quo and create lasting impact for the better.
“From tech and entrepreneurship to the sustainability transition, the women on the podcast will be eager to share their knowledge so that they can inspire and shed a new light on what it means to be a female leader.”
ESCP believes dreams and ambitions are born from the representations we are provided with as children and young adults, and therefore it's crucial to share the voices of these women in the hope that it will participate in the creation of the next generation of leaders.
Where to listen
The podcast will feature on ‘The Choice’ – a media platform powered by ESCP which brings together a variety of voices that reflect both the European and international footprint of the school. From professors and students to guest writers, each author shares their own unique voice and vision of the world of business.
