WDM Collective was founded by Indigo Talent‘s Jude Thompson and Sacha Wall from Data Transmission, and it has been “created to amplify the visibility of all women working with the electronic dance industry from the artists to the engineers“.
Co-founder Jude Thompson said: “The Women in Dance Music Collective is intended to be a platform where people can connect, share stories, inspire and promote each other. Collaborating with the passion and expertise of established groups including She Said So, Women Produce Music and Keychange EU, the WDM Collective will add their voices promoting the visibility of women, encouraging new entrants and nurturing rising stars. We want to instigate positive change at all levels and recognize the strong female contribution to this dynamic and growing industry.”
