"My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive, and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style."
- Maya Angelou
shesaid.so is a curated network of women with active roles in the music industry. Our vision is to create an environment that supports collaboration, creativity and positive values.
Established in September 2014, shesaid.so has been active in the female empowerment space ever since. Our international community is diverse, comprising of female business owners or women holding medium to senior roles across all sectors of the industry - from tech to record labels, PR to management, and more. With headquarters in London and LA, the shesaid.so community continues to grow worldwide and develop an active membership through events and other projects in the Bay Area, NYC, Paris, Berlin, Mumbai and other key music cities around the world, totalling 13 active cities at present.
We curate and speak on panels aimed at promoting exceptional work by women in the music industry. We organize interactive events for our members and extended network, as well as showcases that shed a light on talented female artists and their representatives.
Since its beginnings in London, shesaid.so has become a place where members can openly ask for advice, share jobs and events, announce new projects and build community. There are currently over 2500 members worldwide.
