Women In Music has announced their Women’s History Month event on March 31 live on WIM’s YouTube channel, sponsored by DistroKid and Elektra Women.
Women in Music brings together partners and friends to celebrate what it means to be a Woman in Music, to highlight the collective power, and to showcase the many 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.
“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.
