The Women of Music India (WOMI) has officially opened its doors for membership. The foundation is a women-led community that aims to make the Indian music industry more accessible to women across the globe.

Speaking about the need for organizations like WOMI, early supporter and member, Rapper Raja Kumari said, “It’s time for the mic to be passed on and let women take the lead too”.

Singer-songwriter Jasleen Royal, another member of the community, expands, “We should remove the barriers faced by women in the music industry, and that can only happen if we bring in more women ''.

Execs and professionals from the music industry have pledged their support to help members get access to an extensive community of professionals, early-access to opportunities, job listings, mentorship programs, industry-led workshops, and events across the country for networking.

Preeti Nayyar, Senior Vice President, Brand Partnerships, Universal Music Group said, We’re pooling in our resources, ideas and experience to allow more women to obtain the skills required to join the industry”.
