Let's Be The Change #WomenInMusic...

We believe it is the responsibility of every music industry conference, awards show and every trade publication to truly reflect and celebrate the increasing diversity in our industry. Time and time again incredible women are left out of nominations, not to mention successful BAME and LGBT people, and it’s time this changed.

We call on and offer our support to all music industry conferences and awards to ensure they have a diverse and representative selection process in the future. As a sign of appreciation, recognition, gratitude and respect we list here just some of the amazing UK managers, co-managers, agents and promoters working in our industry that could and should have been nominated for such awards and hope you will join us in celebrating them and recognising them and their achievements going forward.

  • At the specific request of several companies the names of some day to day managers and agent assistants have been included as without them managing and booking artists would not be possible

    These names were submitted via a public form, every effort has been made to fact check but we apologise in advance if any listings are incorrect.

    After an overwhelming response to creation this list and in celebration of all the amazing ladies in our business we are organising an end of year Women in Music get together, men & women WELCOME!

    Help increase diversity at Music industry events and sign up to the speakers database!

    Some kind words of support for the speakers database


    “We’re committed to creating meaningful, lasting change in both our industry & the world. To create equality, we need to actively engage our circle of influence & promote the work of our leading women. This is a poignant step in the right direction for future generations. We hope initiatives like this won’t be necessary in the future, but right now they’re essential for holding our industry accountable. Thank you Sammy.”

    Live Nation Entertainment


    "This is an essential resource that responds to the polite excuses I've heard on so many occasions that (a) "there aren't any women that suit this panel' or (b) "I've asked a woman but she turned the opportunity down". Women and any minority groups that succeed in forging a career in music tend to be particularly brilliant and we need to hear their ideas and perspectives. I hope that this resource will inspire them to put themselves forward and that conference bookers use it to strengthen their programme and professional networks. After all, more diversity = better business. It's a fact."

    Vanessa Reed
    Chief Executive
    PRS for Music Foundation


    “A fantastic initiative that will encourage diversity on public platforms around the world. Giving already talented individuals the confidence to speak up as well as creating an abundance of role models for kids who are attending events, watching the news, listening to the radio and learning about the industries they love is vital and the MMF are proud to support this."

    The MMF - Music Managers Forum


    "It's truly encouraging to learn about the increasing number of initiatives aimed at making the music industry a more diverse and leaner environment. It is an honour to be working alongside such inspiring women and men and have the opportunity to make shesaid.so a leading figure in all matters related to female empowerment."

    She Said So


    "AIM has always actively championed women in music and increased diversity within the music business. The more we work together as an industry to address imbalances and be inclusive and representative (at every level), the stronger our industry will be. We are excited to be part of this initiative, as well as continuing to offer our annual women in music event, public speaking training for women and partnering on the Music Week Women in Music Awards. Through work like this, we can and WILL achieve a balanced music industry."

    Association Of Independent Music


    “When we started FastForward, we were determined to ensure equal gender representation across the whole event, in the panels, the keynotes and even in the audience! In the end we achieved one more female speaker than male, split 19/18 over the two day event – but the 19 were much, much harder to identify and recruit than the 18. I think this initiative can play a crucial role in guiding conference organisers to excellent female speakers – whilst also encouraging talented young women to put themselves forward for new opportunities.”

    Chris Carey
    Founder,
    FastForward


    "There’s no music business topic where it’s impossible to find a diverse mix of people to join the debate on stage, and doing so will almost certainly deliver the wider range of ideas and insights an ever-evolving industry needs - or at least that’s what we’ve always found.

    Achieving that diversity might involve casting a wider net, having a few more conversations before you start booking your speakers, and asking for specific people from the companies you want to feature. Every event has a deadline and it always arrives sooner than you would like, meaning there isn’t always time for that extra work.

    That’s not a great excuse, but it can sometimes be the reason behind that panel of old white men. Which is why this project is as brilliant as it is simple - it will make identifying speakers much easier. I look forward to tapping it for information for my events, and will add to it my previously secret list of brilliant women in music who should be on your panel."
