Presented by Toronto Music Entrepreneurship Exchange (ToMEE) and Hart House Hip Hop Education


In 1989, Hip Hop artist Queen Latifah released her feminist anthem titled “Ladies First” where she detailed the power of women and their ability to take the lead, innovate, and stand in the certainty of their talents and abilities as they carved out their own unique pathways in the world. In a moderated conversation featuring powerhouse women Tinesha Richards-Morris (Manifesto, 925 Agency), Annalie Bonda (The Remix Project, Golly Geng), Tara Chase (solo emcee and member of The Circle) and Keysha Freshh (solo emcee and member of The Sorority), attendees will learn about the role women have and continue to play in Canada’s music and arts landscape, and how they are working to shape the industry’s future while simultaneously transforming its current moment. Students will have the opportunity to network with key figures in Canada’s music and music business industry; learn how to navigate the barriers inherent in the nation’s music industry as its future entrepreneurs and leaders; and dialogue on the role of gender as it intersects with subjects such as leadership, arts and technology, entrepreneurship, self-management, and the landscape of music business, law and contracts. 

This event is presented as part of U of T Entrepreneurship Week 2024.

Light refreshments will be served.
