What We Do
Beats By Girlz is the promise of a future - one where traditionally marginalized gender identities are able to visualize and realize their full potential. We do this important work by giving them access to the tools, resources, education, and community necessary to foster growth. Music is the skeleton key we use to open the door to technology parity and justice, not only in the music industry but in all tech-related fields where women and gender minorities are underrepresented.
We are a decentralized and non-hierarchical global organization that supports and works in tandem with our member chapters all over the world. We empower and collaborate with regional leadership to understand and identify the needs of their respective communities by meeting them where they're at and expanding/contracting to appropriately serve them. Our entire model is built off of power-sharing, partnership, and community building.
Founded in 2013 by Erin Barra, Director of Popular Music at Arizona State University and former Associate Professor at the Berklee College of Music, Beats By Girlz now has over 35 chapters across the world which represent 15 countries across 4 continents.
