“Electronic Music was built on equality and acceptance, and we all need to continue to build on this legacy, making lasting changes that will ultimately benefit everyone”

International Women’s Day celebrates all the hardworking women in our lives and the very real struggle women face worldwide to be treated equally; giving them a voice, equal pay, access to the top jobs, education, healthcare, and affordable childcare.

The music industry has been making good progress in the area of Diversity and Inclusion, but there is still much work to do. We must all continue to look around us and at our businesses and continue to strive for the changes to support women to achieve more and be recognised for their capability to thrive. The more women we see achieving this, the more likely businesses will thrive also.

Electronic Music was built on equality and acceptance, and we all need to continue to build on this legacy, making lasting changes that will ultimately benefit everyone.
