Summary

In celebration of International Women's Day, Herizon Music Foundation supports the United Nation's 2021 message #ChooseToChallenge.

Challenge

The problem: 12% of major music festival acts are female or female fronted 12% of the 600 most popular songs are by female songwriters 5% of working audio engineers are women 2% of working music producers are women Yet, women make up 50% of concert ticket sales and 51% of music streaming audiences. Talk about a major gender disparity problem!

Solution

Our programs include: -- Scholarship grants that build adolescents' musical and technical skills -- The podcast "Backstage Chats with Women In Music," which shares the stories of trailblazers and rising stars -- Random Acts of Music, which connects independent musicians with virtual event hosts for *paid* performances -- Music business educational series (early development) so women have access to the tools and mentors necessary for an equal shot at success in the music industry.

Long-Term Impact

By supporting these programs, you help prepare women for music industry leadership roles, introduce team-building and tech skills, squash imposter syndrome, and promote a sense of self-worth. Most importantly during the time of COVID-19, we're connecting women to paying gigs so they can put food on the table when live performances are not an option.
