Cardi B and Nicki Minaj Join Forces to Create More Opportunities for Women in Music

While female recording artists have always been at the forefront of the music industry, it’s behind the scenes where things gets a bit more scarce. In fact, according to Dr. Stacy Smith’s USC Annenberg Inclusion Initiative study, only 2 percent of music producers and 3 percent of engineers/mixers within the music industry are women.

Thankfully, the recently announced Producer and Engineering Inclusion Initiative is looking to jumpstart those abysmal numbers by confronting the rampant gender inequality that permeates the music industry.
