Women in the Studio program

Women are missing in the industry.

A February 2019 report by the USC Annenberg Inclusion Initiative found that women made up only 21.7% of artists, 12.3% of songwriters, and 2.1% producers throughout the top 100 hundred songs of every year from 2012 to 2018. That same report found that women producers were outnumbered 47 to 1 by male producers in the sample of recordings analyzed.

We are pleased to announce our 2019 Women In the Studio Program for five producer-songwriters, made possible through support from Ontario Creates & RBC Royal Bank.

Benefits of this new mentorship program include:

  • a JUNOS-related experience in London, ON March 2019
  • a CMW-related experience in Toronto, May 2019
  • access to industry mentors
  • other networking opportunities
