Music Week is delighted to unveil its 2017 Women In Music Roll Of Honour ahead of this week's hotly-anticipated ceremony.
The Roll Of Honour includes game-changing female executives from across the industry, with this year's list including executives from labels, publishers, the live sector and beyond.
The annual Women In Music event will be hosted by BBC Radio 1’s Alice Levine on Friday, November 10 at our new, larger venue, The Brewery In London. The last few remaining tickets are available here, with a record crowd already guaranteed.
Music Week works closely with our partners UK Music, AIM and WIN to celebrate the most important and influential women from all sectors of the music industry at the awards, which are now in their fourth year.
The winners of the main awards will be unveiled at Friday's ceremony, hosted by Radio 1's Alice Levine, where categories being contested include three new ones – Music Champion, International Woman Of The Year and The Company Award: Diversity In The Workplace. The others are: Businesswoman Of The Year, Outstanding Contribution, Inspirational Artist, Campaigner, Rising Star and New Artist Award.
Now, we can confirm the 12 new names that will be added to the Women In Music Roll Of Honour, which now comprises 50-plus influential and inspirational women from across the music industry.
