AOP sponsoring a live series of Claima Stories with Bimma

Starting March 31, Claima Stories with Bimma is launching a series of 5 weekly live episodes, Tuesdays at 6pm, via Zoom. Each episode will highlight the careers of top talent from the sportswear industry and how they claimed a seat at the table.

The live format of the Claima Stories podcast was created in an effort to lift spirits during the Coronaviras pandemic and provide a dynamic way for the A&O community to engage with each other while sheltering at home. It also provides a way for the audience to engage and ask Bimma’s guests questions in real time.

Clamia Stories with Bimma:
a Live Interview Series

The Coronavirus pandemic has significantly impacted our day to day existence, reshaping how we work, communicate, and how we socialize with our loved ones.

It’s caused us to feel anxious, alone, frustrated, sad, and uncertain. In an effort to lift spirits, we decided to launch our weekly live series to help people through this tough time.” –
Bimma Williams
