The under-representation of women in senior leadership roles - both creatively and administratively - is significant.
Our purpose is to explore the reasons for this imbalance and to find ways to champion and generate more opportunities for women in these roles.
We aim to dismantle outdated attitudes towards the compatibility of parenthood and a career by:
Celebrating the great many role model opera parents managing to do both
Working with opera companies to find ways of updating their working practices to make a career in opera more accessible for people with families and dependants (men and women)
