Music Panel: Addressing the gender gap in music radio


Public service, radio and music… Often referred to as a “marriage made in heaven”, this “special relationship” is still true today as music programming on public service media (PSM) remains diverse and inclusive. However, there is always room for improvement. Gender disparity on-air is a situation that needs be addressed. Indeed, women artists and musicians are under-represented on most radio stations. 
This online panel will echo the 2021 International Women’s Day’s special #choosetochallenge theme. How are radio music public channels challenging themselves to help forge a gender-equal radio music world? How are they celebrating the work of creative women and engaging with audiences on this topic? The panel will discuss sustainable initiatives and policies, but there will also be an opportunity for women musicians actively involved in the media world to weigh in on this and other crucial issues.
