Industry Seminar

Stockholm, Sweden June 12th, 2017

Spotify, the industry association Musikförläggarna and MXM Music invited the Swedish music industry to raise the discussion about gender equality among songwriters and producers - two professional roles in the music industry that are still male-dominated.

Together Spotify, the industry association Musikförläggarna and MXM Music started off the Equalizer Project in 2017 by lifting up the discussion around gender equality behind the music at an industry seminar in Stockholm. On stage was Spotify founder Daniel Ek, music producer Max Martin, CEO of Musikförläggarna Elisabet Widlund, the Grammis awarded producer Jenny Wilson, producers and artists Jenny and Cecilia Vaz, music journalist Annah Björk and media analyst expert Tina Sayed Nestius.
