Minding the Gender Gap.
This panel will explore projects, initiatives and programmes in the music scene that are putting women front and centre – from the classroom, to the board room, to the stage.
This panel will look at how we can support more women to engage in historically male-dominated spaces, examine the “talent pipeline” and explore what more we can all do to move things forward.
