On Wednesday October 25th, CDI partnered with She Is The Music (SITM) for The Power Within Our Words, an intimate conversation with female industry innovators across music writing disciplines. Joining us were guest industry innovators LaJoyce Brookshire (Music Anthology/Authorship), Naima Cochrane (Music Journalism), and Jeanne Ricks (Songwriting).
In honor of Tisch's Week of Community, the event was opened to all NYU students, and SITM’s student representatives from both Steinhardt’s School of Music Business and CDI collaborated to build an insightful and engaging night of conversation topics and questions for our amazing guests.
The room (our music venue The Garage on the first floor of CDI’s building) was truly electric with laughter, heartfelt storytelling, expert advice for students, and above all, an eager audience enthralled in the words of our speakers. At the end of the event, all students received a free signed copy of speaker LaJoyce Brookshire’s book “Women Behind The Mic,” and all students were able to chat 1-on-1 with guests to ask questions, share stories, and learn from each other.
Thank you to She Is The Music and our amazing CDI community for an incredible industry event!
