Berklee Empowerment Initiative: Young Women in Music
The Berklee Empowerment Initiative aims to create pathways for young women to achieve and sustain careers in the music industry.
There is a stark contrast between the number of women and men within the music industry. Whether it is executives, producers, engineers, or A&R, women are in the minority. Starting with education and carrying through to career entry, our goal is to make sure any young woman entering the music industry feels like she can accomplish her biggest dreams.
The first step is to identify the problem and outline the solution. By bringing together representatives from education and the music industry, we will form a multi-tiered approach that includes scholarship opportunities, internships, and professional development that will set young women on the pathway to success.
