Fast Company Partners With Economic Hardship Reporting Project To Launch New Multimedia Project: Ambition Diaries

Fast Company launched a multimedia package, Ambition Diaries, in partnership with the journalism non-profit, Economic Hardship Reporting Project. Ambition Diaries features candid conversations between 14 mothers and daughters about the changing landscape of women’s progress in the workforce and the pandemic’s impact on our relationship with work.

Ambition Diaries features seven as-told-to articles with accompanying original photography and audio clips. The project includes a special four-episode mini-series on Fast Company’s The New Way We Work podcast around themes of economic mobility, discrimination, work-life balance, and the recalibration of ambition. The episodes will air each Monday in October, beginning October 3rd.

Over the course of several months, seven reporters from across the country recorded intimate conversations between mothers and daughters about issues like unpaid labor, discrimination, pay gap, career advancement, work-life balance, and how the pandemic has changed our relationship to work. The 14 mothers and daughters profiled in Ambition Diaries range from 27-81 years old, come from a variety of ethnic and socio-economic backgrounds, and work across various industries.
