A new community for female creators and allies - proudly sponsored by ASCAP

Reboot is a new community for female creators and allies founded by Pulse Music Group President Maria Egan and hit songwriter Simon Wilcox.

The initiative, launched with a townhall meeting in September 2018, was created to empower female creators to take more creative leadership roles and reverse the alarming trend, exposed by a recent USC study, of a declining number of women represented on the charts
The next event, sponsored by ASCAP, is planned for Tuesday, November 13 and titled “The Gatekeepers - Women in A&R”.

We will be joined by notable female executives who will share their experiences and discuss solutions for the under-representation of female creators on the charts.  Joining us are: 
Wendy Goldstein (EVP of Republic Records)
Ethiopia Habtemariam (President of Motown Records)
Maria Egan (President of Pulse Music Group)
Maureen Kenny (SVP of A&R at Atlantic Records)
Teresa LaBarbera Whites (Head of A&R at Parkwood Entertainment)
Ashley Calhoun (VP of Pulse Music Group).


RSVP to before November 9.


The October workshop featured Grammy award-winning songwriters and producers Claudia Brant, Bonnie McKee and Jennifer Decilveo speaking about their experiences transitioning from songwriting to Producer and Executive Producer roles in the studio. Billboard’s in depth coverage of this event can be found here.
