PMA Works to Boost Gender Equity in Field
Gender diversity in the music industry has a long way to go
Gender diversity in the music industry has a long way to go; the Production Music Association (PMA) wants to help. This week, PMA announced that it has formed a committee focused on increasing female representation in music production and the larger media industry.
“People are shocked to learn that a mere 3 percent of music composers in media are female and this figure could be even lower in production music,’’ said Mirette Seireg, chair of the newly formed Inclusion Committee and founder of Mpath Music Library. “Raising this percentage is not only the right thing to do but the smart thing to do because it’s been demonstrated time and again that when women achieve equal status everyone prospers.”
The committee plans to work with the Geena Davis Institute on Gender in the Media to conduct field studies on the state of gender in the production music industry.
