Empowering creators with the tools to succeed is the Audiomack ethos. With that, Audiomack has announced its partnership with the Music Business Academy for Africa, along with a $5,000 contribution to the program’s Women’s Fund.
After observing an uneven distribution of opportunities for women in the music business, the MBA pledged to work with sponsors and partners to secure at least 200 spots for women in the MBA program—which offers specialized courses on music industry verticals such as marketing, A&R, legal, and more.
Audiomack’s contribution will sponsor 20 women to join the program dedicated to educating aspiring industry professionals on effective music/brand marketing strategies, talent management, business structure, and more.
“Audiomack is proud to partner with Music Business Africa in providing young African professionals a foundation to begin their career in the music industry,” says Vanessa Wilkins, VP of Music & Data Partnerships at Audiomack. “We are excited to support MBA’s mission to provide resources and education to historically underrepresented groups in entertainment—particularly women, who continue to face obstacles such as a gaping gender pay gap and extremely low representation amongst industry executives.”
Additionally, five hand-picked artists will be selected to receive a professional rollout plan, including assistance on the business, marketing, and creative end from attendees of the MBA program.
