We ask the question - Why is there still a 30% gender pay gap in the music industry?

Event details

It has been two years since the first #metoo testimonies ignited fierce debate about high-profile abusers, the pay gap and lack of representation in the music industry. Yet recent figures show the gender pay gap is still at a staggering 30 per cent.

We ask the question – why has nothing changed in the world of music?

Join us at our annual London lecture as we invite Dr Kirsty Fairclough, Associate Dean (Research & Innovation) in the School of Arts and Media, Salford alumna and expert on women in pop culture to deliver her insight into these debates, as well as navigate the difficult terrain which women in the music industry still face.

The lecture will be followed by a drinks reception and the opportunity to continue the discussion with your fellow alumni, as well as catch up with former classmates and friends old and new.
