Today Music Week is delighted to reveal this year’s Roll Of Honour – in association with TikTok – for our Women In Music Awards 2022.
The hugely popular daytime ceremony takes place at Park Plaza, Westminster Bridge on Friday, November 11. Tickets and tables are now completely sold out.
The Music Week Women In Music Awards recognise the great careers of women and female-identifying people across the business. The Roll of Honour aims to highlight the breadth, depth and variety of individuals who are ‘game changers’ in the music industry.
For this year’s Roll Of Honour, we are proud to unveil 14 executives from across the industry. They join a line-up of previous honorees, including some of the most significant figures in the business, such as Kanya King, Lucy Dickins, Emma Banks, Amber Davis, Rebecca Allen and Stacey Tang, who have been selected since the awards began in 2014.
This year’s Roll Of Honour includes posthumous recognition for Yasmin Lajoie, A&R executive, manager and activist.

The Roll Of Honour recognises the breadth, depth and variety of individuals who play a critical role in the business and this event helps shine a spotlight on the excellent work they do.
“We’re humbled to work with so many across the industry who strive to further the cause of female empowerment and tackle gender disparity in all its forms; it's an issue that matters to TikTok and the wider community that we serve."
