“I think WoN is a great initiative for NAMM. One of the things I noticed when I first joined the music industry ten years ago was how few women there are in the music industry. Even when I would visit dealers or something industry related, there just wasn’t a lot of inclusion, consistently for women. I see it very different now, and I think WoN is a big part of that and is going to make it even better in the future.”
