The PEC is aiming to draw insights from world experts about how to tackle skills, talent and diversity challenges facing different parts of the creative economy. In this context, this event brings together key stakeholders from industry and policy, and international experts from the wider research community, to discuss what factors might be inhibiting the career achievements of female creative professionals in the music industry.

Noah Askin, Assistant Professor of Organisational Behaviour from INSEAD, one of the world's leading business schools, will present his research which aims to shed more light on why women’s career achievements tend to lag behind men’s when they participate at such higher rates than men in cultural activities like art, music, and literature.

Professor Candace Jones, PEC researcher and Chair of Global Creative Enterprise at the University of Edinburgh Business School, will join Noah in discussing the findings of the research and the wider implications of this research and practical steps we can take to advance future opportunities within the music industry.

Registration will open at 10:30am with refreshments and the seminar will start promptly at 11:00am.
