Help Musicians UK (HMUK), the leading independent charity for musicians in the UK has today announced a partnership with Women in Music (WIM).
The new partnership launches WIM’s first European chapters entitled Women In Music Great Britain and Women In Music Northern Ireland.
This will further establish Help Musicians UK’s lead in the debate and commitment to promoting gender equality in the UK music industry.
WIM Great Britain and Women in Music Northern Ireland will aim to represent all women in the UK music industry. Any woman or man who works in the industry can join, from students to seasoned industry veterans – and from all genres and areas of expertise. Members will enjoy benefits including seminars, panels, workshops, roundtable discussions and more.
Richard Robinson, Help Musicians chief executive, said: ‘HMUK is proud to partner with Women in Music (WIM) to launch the very first European chapters of the organisation.
‘As an independent voice, the charity advocates on behalf of all individuals and groups within the music industry, supporting an eco-system that attracts and provides opportunities to people from all walks of life and backgrounds. Working with WIM on such an important issue enables us, as an industry, to continue to question, have conversations, discuss and raise awareness of gender equality – working in tandem to address this imbalance.’
Membership will initially be administered by Women in Music via WIM@helpmusicians.org.uk.
This will be completely free in the first year.
