Women in Music Presents: Celebrating Unity & Collective Power Beyond Women’s History Month by bringing together partners and friends to celebrate what it means to be a Woman in Music. The event will highlight the collective power from inspiring individuals and organizations working to create a more equitable industry for all.
Launching WIM's channel on YouTube, the virtual event will feature artists and executives in a showcase of diverse global talent, highlighting women-led moments in music history and the organizations working to advance women in all sectors of the industry today. The channel will continue highlighting artists, industry executives, events and more year-round.
“We are so excited to see so many companies celebrating women in our industry this year during Women’s History Month, but the work has to extend beyond token months assigned to underrepresented groups,” says Nicole Barsalona, President of Women In Music. “We’re here year-round doing the work day in and day out, alongside some incredible organizations and individuals who are creating transformational change in our industry. Today, and everyday, we highlight them and celebrate the unity, diversity, and collective power of women in music. And we’re asking everyone to join us in taking measurable action to create a culture of belonging for all.”
