A music tech initiative challenging the gender imbalance in the industry is launching a brand new week-long digital event ‘7 Days of Sound’, designed to connect, empower and inspire a global community of women and non-binary people in music tech.
Founded in Bristol, UK in 2015 by Laura Lewis-Paul, Saffron operates as a social enterprise that primarily offers training in music production, sound engineering and DJing, as well as running an artist development program and record label.
At 7 Days of Sound, workshops will take place on Zoom and will be led by world-class hosts, catering to folks of all backgrounds and levels of experiences.
The music tech industry is currently composed of just 5% women. Saffron’s aim is to increase that figure, advancing gender equality in the sector by creating a safe space for women, female-identifying and non-binary people (womxn) to learn and build confidence.
