Leading Women in Audio: Starting the Conversation
March 15th and 16th
On March 15th and 16th, 2019, Elon University will host a conference titled “Leading Women In Audio: Starting the Conversation”. The event is focused on high school and college students, highlighting the contributions of women in the current music and entertainment industry. Four women from the audio community will present technical workshops on Friday, and Saturday will feature panel discussions on topics such as Professionalism, Managing the Workplace, Being an Ally, and Career Development. There will also be manufacturer demos and socializing with local studio owners, businesses and other musicians.
Our Mission Statement:
In its inaugural year, the Leading Women in Audio conference seeks to begin a conversation on campus and in the field regarding the experiences of women in the audio industry. We are seeking to connect students with local professionals and allow them a chance to learn from a selection of remarkably skilled women role models. Not only do we intend to highlight the experiences the women in the audio industry, but also to discuss ways in which everybody can be an ally to marginalized communities in the field.
