A Note from our CEO

This International Women's Day and Women's History month, Symbonic is building a base for the next generation. For five years, I have guided Symbonic to a point where we are ready to engage and make changes in the entertainment and media industries. My personal experiences have bridged new perspectives and ideas to create a stronger, more creative work environment.

A strong women's presence at Symbonic creates a more equitable workplace where we can reach our full potential and bring success to everyone we work with. Allowing more women at the table builds a better future for all.

2023 Theme:

Celebrating Women Who Tell Our Stories

The National Women's History Alliance advocated for the month of March to be dedicated to women as a time to recognize and celebrate the accomplishments of women across all industries and history. The theme this year aims to shine the light on women who continually honor women by sharing stories of perseverance, strength, and resilience.

By the Numbers

It's no secret that in the tech sector and media universe, women, particularly women of color, are vastly underrepresented. Most notably, women are significantly lacking in leadership roles. Progress has been made for the gender wage gap, but change is slow. Suffice to say, women continue to be missing from the conversation.
