Season 3, Episode 8
When I set out to do this interview I was thinking about the transformation from female entrepreneurs to mamapreneurs and how our lives have to shift to accommodate the new baby and relationships. What I wasn’t expecting was to be schooled in gender equality, women empowerment and leadership. But there you go...when you allow for open communication you never know where it will lead you.
Welcome to the #mumboss podcast a show dedicated to enhancing your super mama powers. I’m your host Rachel Maskell and today’s guest is Claudia Chan, the founder and mastermind behind the S.H.E Summit
. Claudia has produced events and content to attract women and ran a multi-million dollar company since her early 20’s. You can say she knows a thing or two about entrepreneurialism.

What we cover:
- Holistic view of gender equality
- What it will take for equality
- Women’s empowerment movement

About this episode
Meet the Guest
Hello Beautiful Women (& Men)!
Gosh where do I start? I have been immersed in the community of women my whole life (from all-girl schools…to a having fearless entrepreneurial mom…to co-running a girlfriend entertainment company called Shecky’s for 9 years). But in 2010 at age 35, when I opened my eyes to the state of women, that’s when I stepped into a NEW CONSCIOUSNESS OF WHAT IT MEANS TO BE A WOMAN IN TODAY’S WORLD. I personalized these issues and realized my responsibility to leverage my life and God-given gifts to improve this reality and convene other women to do so too. Channeling my Smith College days, the feminist in me woke back up and I started consuming every event, nonprofit, article and book I could find centered around the words “women’s empowerment, leadership, power, and potential.” I met an army of incredible women starting, innovating, empowering, leading, disrupting and often juggling multiple jobs while driving positive change for a cause. It hit me, these female role models (executives, entrepreneurs, social change makers, mothers, innovators) were vastly underrepresented in mainstream TV shows, magazines and websites that today’s women and young girls consume. Media is a persuasive form of education and creator of consciousness, and since most programming covets the beautiful, thin and young — I am convinced it directly affects how our female generation perceives it’s personal self worth and potential.
So I decided to ditch security and devote all my being to creating S.H.E. Global Media to be a purposeful women’s media and education company. It’s name stands for “she helps empower the globe” with the belief that if I feed women with enough content, conferences and curriculum…role models, tools for growth, advice and mentorship…they will become more successful at integrating their personal and professional lives, and therefore CHANGE THE WORLD! Watch my TEDx Talk on the #SHERevolution
to understand me better, hear my perspective of the women’s revolution happening now, why I need your support and how we can work together.
