Back in 2013, Politico started its Women Rule series, a project that aims to inform, empower and connect women across different sectors and career levels.

Through large-scale summits, newsmaker interviews, networking events, podcasts and original reporting, staff at the organisation have spent the past five years championing transformative women and the work they have achieved, while discussing the issues that affect women in the workplace and how they can be improved.

Carrie Budoff Brown, the editor of Politico and former managing editor of Politico Europe, tells us in this week's podcast how the franchise, which is produced in partnership with Google and the Tory Burch Foundation, has developed over time into a community of influential women devoted to expanding leadership opportunities for other women.
