    Getting More Women Into the Mix (especially in the audience)
    Wed March 4 2015
    8-9:30pm EST
    an online webinar
                        via Google Hangouts
    It's widely known that women are under-represented in the jazz world, both as performers and as audience members. In this online panel discussion, our guests will focus on the latter, as they consider strategies and marketing efforts to improve the welcome of all genders at jazz activities and events.  
    The webinar is free and open to all; but we ask that you register here in advance.
    * Janis Lane-Ewart has run innovative social media campaigns for the Jazz Institute of Chicago and Minneapolis community radio station KFAI. She's also the curator of "Free At First: The Audacious Journey of AACM," an exhibit at the Du Sable Museum of African American History.

    * Terri Pontremoli is artistic and executive director of Tri-C JazzFest Cleveland, now a year-round presenter, having been managing, artistic and/or executive director of the Detroit Jazz Festival from 2005 through 2011.

    * Amy Bormet is a vocalist, arranger, and composer who created the Washington Women in Jazz Festival in the nation's capital in 2011, and continues to serve as its executive director. 

    Please note: This panel will be presented via Google Hangouts video. All registrants will receive login/access information prior to the panel date.  All viewers will be able to post questions and comments for the panel.
