She Is The Music (SITM), a charitable organisation that champions equality, inclusivity and opportunity for women in music, has announced the official global database of women working in the industry.
Created in Partnership with Billboard, the database will be ‘a source for discovering, connecting and creating with women’, and will feature songwriters, engineers, producers, studio staff and live touring professionals.
SITM was first established earlier this year in response to a music industry study which revealed the numbers of women working in the industry are historically low. Its Board of Directors/Co-Founders includes Alicia Keys; Jody Gerson, Global Chairman and CEO, Universal Music Publishing Group; Samantha Kirby Yoh, Partner and Head of East Coast Music, WME; and Ann Mincieli, AK-Worldwide, Jungle City Studios.
Its Creator Committee, which advises the organisation, includes Jenna Andrews, Marcella Araica, Sara Bareilles, Banks, Björk, Mary J. Blige, Jen Decilveo, Billie Eilish, Missy Elliott, Ariana Grande, Skylar Grey, HAIM, and Halsey.
Included in the Executive Committee are Michele Anthony, Adriana Arce, Lisa Barbaris, Barbara Cane, Rosemary Carroll, Corrie Christopher Martin, Caroline Elleray and Tina Farris amongst others.
The database will be launching in early 2019. Sign up here.
