WoN Leadership Summit to Welcome 18 Emerging Female Leaders

Women of NAMM (WoN) has announced that 18 emerging female leaders will participate in the WoN Summit, October 16–18, 2023, at the NAMM Headquarters in Carlsbad, California.

Now in its fourth year, the WoN Summit is an intensive, three-day leadership immersion experience designed to support women working across the industry and their goals to connect, support and grow their leadership and professional abilities. 

Participants in the Summit will include Caitlin Doherty of Erikson Audio, Cassandra of Sotos of AmpRx, Fela Davis of One of One Productions, Gennifer Dusold of Brighton Music Center, Jenna Day of Day Violins, Jennifer Weiss of Martin Guitar, Jennifer Hoffman of Guitar Center, Jessica Palmer of West Music, Julie Hamm of White House of Music, Julie Tan of AEA Ribbon Mics, Kelly Riordan-Peterson of Outside The Bachs, Kristi Jacobsen of Alfred Publishing, Mallory Nees of Reverb.com, Michelle Guzman of Yamaha, Monique Collins of Buffet Crampon, Morgane Devos of Shure, Rosa Flores of Ted Brown Music and Shawna Shaner of Robert M. Sides.

“Connecting and communing with my peers at the WoN Summit is such an empowering way for women to unite and aspire toward greater equity in our industry,” said Mallory Nees of Reverb. “Music is so much more vibrant when everybody has the opportunity to play.”

“I am excited and looking forward to learn, connect, and network with successful female leaders,” added Rosa Flores of Ted Brown Music.

The summit will include an intensive leadership and professional development program, presented by Dr. Jennifer Hall.

“It’s a privilege and a pleasure to facilitate the annual WoN Summit each fall,” said Dr. Jennifer Hall. “The evolution I see from Day 1 to Day 3 in the participants’ belief in themselves as leaders and in their connections with each other is truly remarkable. The latest cohort of women looks phenomenal. I can’t wait to work with them in Carlsbad in October — and to continue to watch them grow and flourish in ways that benefit both the women themselves and also the music [products] industry.”
