Natasha Bent at Coda says:
“Every time I go to these awards I’m truly inspired and humbled by strong women honoured from all sectors of the music industry. We want to give the opportunity to those that might not normally get the chance to be part of this and we look forward to spending the day with our future leaders!”
Jackie Nalpant at Paradigm says:
"I feel so fortunate to work at a company that not only respects women but constantly strives to promote, highlight and support them. On behalf of Paradigm, we all look forward to continuing our ongoing commitment to foster equality, opportunity and quality of life for all women in the music industry."
Flora Ward, Youth Music Grants Officer says:
“Music Week's Women in Music Awards is a great annual event where the focus is rightly on acknowledging the great work of women in the music industry, many of whom overcome obstacles to get recognition. Gender equality is really important to us and we appreciate Coda and Paradigm’s generosity in offering places to attend the Awards ceremony. We hope that those who win will be inspired to progress their own careers, in whatever capacity, within the music industry."
