Mindy Abovitz Monk is an award-winning entrepreneur and social activist, committed to diversifying the music industry. Through her media company Tom Tom Magazine and her contest Hit Like a Girl, Mindy has inspired a global audience of musicians to play with power and pride. In 2018, she was recognized by the Grammys as a Change Agent and she is a recipient of the She Rocks Award.
In her presentation on diversity and inclusion, Mindy will share with you what she has learned in this last decade bridging the gap between the drum industry and female drummers. Through representation, conversations, listening, and pushing, Mindy has managed to open a bit of the industry up and bridge the gap between the female drummer and the industry. Let's broaden this discussion to ask ourselves how we can further diversify our own lives, companies, products, and the beautiful world of music we live in.
