Turn the Dial: Closing the Gender Gap in Music Production

Mar 12, 2023

12:30pm – 1:30pm CT

In a recent analysis of popular songs from the last decade, only 2.8% were produced by women. Porsche’s long-standing partner, Bose, launched the Turn the Dial initiative earlier this month to bring awareness to this issue and announced that they’ll be working with She Is The Music, a non-profit dedicated to the cause, to seek new opportunities for women and non-binary music producers to create music that deserves to be heard.
Please join Cass Cruz from Bose, Deniz Keskin from Porsche, Michelle Arkuski from She Is The Music and award-winning music producer, audio engineer, and singer-songwriter Ebonie Smith, where they’ll explore this initiative further and discuss what needs to be done to invite real change in the industry.
