PRS For Music has partnered with Music Week’s 2016 Women in Music event.
Taking place on Friday, November 11 at the Royal Garden Hotel, Kensington, the event celebrates the most important and influential women from all sectors of the music industry.
Earlier this week we unveiled the 2016 Women in Music Roll of Honour, which now comprises 40-plus influential and inspirational women from across the biz.
Pamela Harding, director of HR, PRS for Music, commented: “I am delighted that PRS for Music has partnered with Music Week’s Women in Music. As the past two years have shown, it is an incredibly positive event, as it celebrates not only some of the most excellent women in the music business but also diversity itself, an area in which the industry is – quite rightly – working hard to improve.”
