Natasha Bent at Coda said “Every time I go to these awards I’m truly inspired and humbled by strong women honoured from all sectors of the music industry. We want to give the opportunity to those that might not normally get the chance to be part of this and we look forward to spending the day with our future leaders!”
Jackie Nalpant at Paradigm commented “I feel so fortunate to work at a company that not only respects women but constantly strives to promote, highlight and support them. On behalf of Paradigm, we all look forward to continuing our ongoing commitment to foster equality, opportunity and quality of life for all women in the music industry.”
Flora Ward, Youth Music Grants Officer (Women in Music) said “The Women in Music Awards is a great annual event when the focus is rightly on acknowledging the great work of women in the music industry, many of whom overcome obstacles to get recognition. Gender equality is very important to us and we appreciate Coda and Paradigm’s generosity in offering places to attend the Awards ceremony. We hope that those who win will be inspired to progress their own careers, in whatever capacity, within the music industry.”
The fourth annual Women in Music event will take place on Friday 10th November 2017 at the Brewery, Central London. This event has gone from strength to strength since its launch in 2014, with UK Music, AIM and Music Week working together to celebrate the most important and influential women from all sectors of the music industry.
In 2016, 12 new names were added to the Roll of Honour, which now comprises 40+ amazing women from the Music Industry. The full list can be viewed here. Women in Music is a celebratory event which recognises the achievements of great careers and brilliant executives, and 2017 will see more awards bestowed on deserving women, as well as 12 more additions to our prestigious Roll of Honour.
