The Play Gap

The data is clear. Audio needs more women. So we’re stepping up to shift the balance. We’re committed to using our platform and power to amplify female voices -- behind the scenes, on stage, and in our very own playlists.

2020 marks the start of a new decade. Now is the time to look hard at the state of audio and decide what we want our legacy to be. There is no one simple solution to audio’s gender imbalance, but with an engaged community, all things are possible. Let’s create a future where everyone is heard. Let’s work together to close the Play Gap.
