Canadian Women in Music is (so far) an informal group composed of people who identify as women working in the music industry, whether paid or volunteer, and allies who support them. It includes performers, administrators, bookers, agents, promoters, and more, welcoming all aspects of the music industry.
The aim of this group is to encourage, promote, support, connect, and educate women in the music industry.
The focus is on achievable, actionable goals and strategies to address issues that affect women in music.
The first meetup of this group was at the 2014 Folk Music Ontario conference, and anyone interested is encouraged to hold regional meetups in order to address issues that they identify.
There’s a ‘Canadian Women in Music’ Facebook group where you can connect with others to discuss and strategize.
