025: Elaine Welteroth. Harnessing Ambition. Navigating Office Politics.
As the youngest ever person to be appointed editor-in-chief of a Condé Nast title – and only the second ever African American person to hold that position – former Teen Vogue Editor-in-Chief Elaine Welteroth was the driving force behind the magazine’s pivot to a more political, more socially conscious editorial stance that earned it an army of new readers and admirers. An award-winning writer and New York Times bestselling author (on account of her memoir More Than Enough), Elaine has charted a pretty unprecedented course through the media industry – and she’s only just getting started. We managed to cover so much on this episode, from existential careers crises and navigating toxic working environments, to how to approach your career role models for advice, and the salary negotiation lessons Elaine had to learn the hard way. Her story is a lesson in harnessing ambition whilst staying true to yourself, and Elaine speaks with refreshing candour about the ups and downs of being at the forefront of one of the most prestigious media brands in the world.

024: Funmi Fetto. Racism In Beauty. From Print To Digital.
Seasoned fashion and beauty editor Funmi Fetto is something of an anomaly within the magazine world – a black journalist who’s risen to the heady heights of executive editor and beauty director of Glamour magazine, by way of a stint as beauty editor at British Vogue, and an on-going column for the Observer. She’s recently published Palette, a carefully curated beauty guide aimed specifically at women of colour that British Vogue’s Editor-in-Chief Edward Enninful has described as “ground-breaking and essential reading”. We get deep on the subject of racism within the beauty industry, with Funmi sharing her experiences navigating the predominantly white spaces of fashion, and the wider issues that still persist when it comes to how brands interact with black consumers, from colourism and discriminatory marketing tactics to microaggressions and outright racism. Plus – Funmi gives her opinion on the so-called death of print media and how media outlets should adapt to our new digital reality, as well as a few pointers for aspiring magazine journalists hoping to break into an endlessly competitive industry.

023: Kate Hamilton & Emily Ames. Brands And Storytelling. Business Development.
Consider this episode a masterclass in brand storytelling, courtesy of Kate Hamilton and Emily Ames, co-founders of content and communications agency Sonder & Tell, which specialises in helping brands craft their messaging and figure out how best to communicate with their customers. Since setting up Sonder & Tell two years ago, the pair have worked with clients that range from food startups to sexual health apps, and earlier this year they teamed up with fashion brand Jigsaw to publish an anthology of essays by some of the UK’s leading female writers. On this episode they share vital tips for brands trying to figure out how to do ‘content’ properly, addressing everything from the importance of creating a strong brand narrative (and how to do that), to why so many brands seem to keep getting it wrong. Plus, find out what to expect when it comes to getting a service-based business off the ground, as Kate and Emily share what they’ve learned about business development, setting their rates, and figuring out which clients and projects are going to be more trouble than they’re worth… Follow Sonder & Tell on Instagram (@sonderandtell) or head to their website sonderandtell.com For flexible, full-service office spaces, check out our episode sponsor Storey: storey.co.uk For more career-related ideas and advice, join the Women Who community by signing up at www.womenwho.co, or follow @oteghauwagba and @womenwho on Instagram and Twitter.
