To celebrate International Women’s Day and Women’s History Month 2022 we hosted a #BreakTheBias virtual panel debate with a select number of guest speakers who represent different areas of the industry:
- Farah Nanji – Point Blank Lecturer, Producer & DJ, Journalist
- Naomi Jackson – Producer & Studio Engineer, Omnii Collective
- Elena Aleekseva – Point Blank Lecturer, Composer, Sound Designer
- Florentia Stassi – Point Blank Alumni, Defected Records, elrow Resident DJ
The theme of IWD 2022 was #BreakTheBias – Imagine a Gender Equal World and we encouraged all viewers to participate in the discussion, no matter their gender, background or experience. You can tune in to the panel below.
During the panel, the guests discuss pressing topics such as whether there are equal opportunities for men and women in the music industry, if there has been a shift in the way women are perceived in the industry, how they feel the #MeToo movement impacted the creative industries, whether women have to work twice as hard to outshine men and much more.
