Women currently make up just 5% of the music tech industry.
This problem is reflected in recording studios, mixing desks, stages and line ups around the world. This creates an intimidating and often hostile environment making it difficult for women to feel like they can engage within these industries.
We want to change this.
We feel that the short term solution is to create safe, single sex learning environments for the education of women which encourage confidence, creativity and curiosity.
