SoundGirls, the non-profit established to provide support and empowerment for women and non-binary persons working in professional audio, has announced the roster for their upcoming Virtual Conference, December 4 and 5, 2021.
They tell us that, with women, non-binary and BIPOC still making up only five percent of the professional work force in audio and music production, SoundGirls has long been committed to encouraging and assisting women and under-represented individuals with a desire to attain success in the audio industry. The two-day SoundGirls Virtual Conference is a two-day event open to all individuals with a passion for audio and music. Designed for everyone from audio veterans to beginners and students, the Virtual Conference offers programs and presentations from a wide range of women, men, and non-binary professionals in multiple roles and careers, featuring sessions in post-production, recording, live, theater production, broadcast, and more. The Conference also offers networking opportunities with peers and industry professionals. And the SoundGirls Mexico City chapter will present several sessions in Spanish.
Karrie Keyes, Co-Founder, told us, "SoundGirls has always existed to provide a support network for women and non-binary people working in pro audio, and to create opportunities for education and growth. Even though we've made great strides in recent years, the industry is still sorely lacking in women, non-binary, and people of color across all sectors. The roster for the SoundGirls Virtual Conference intentionally draws from a cross section of experts in our industry, providing greater representation by women and non-binary people and those who support them."
The SoundGirls Virtual Conference begins on December 4, 2021 at 12:00am PST, and runs through 11:59pm PST on December 5, 2021. Tickets are available for either day, or an All-Access Pass that grants access to all sessions, panels, networking, and mentoring. All attendees will receive full access to an on-demand video archive of all sessions.
Founded in 2013, SoundGirls supports women working in professional audio and music production. Our mission is to create a supportive community for women in audio and music production, providing the tools, knowledge, and support to further their careers.
