Anything for a Hit: #MeToo in the Music Industry

Recording: Anything for a Hit: #MeToo in the Music Industry, Mar 13, 2019


Dorothy Carvello

As the first female A&R executive at Atlantic Records, Dorothy Carvello has a career marked with success but dampened by abuse and sexual harassment by the male kingmakers of the music industry. Learn how she flipped the script and showed Ertegun and every other man who tried to control her that a woman can be just as willing to do what it takes to get a hit. Carvello will provide commentary on how to be successful in a male-dominated industry and how to use your voice in today’s #MeToo movement. She’ll also discuss how we can’t continue to divide up into men and women and need to create a culture of support and music that matters.
