This past week, Pauline Blackwood and I hosted the first Toronto area SoundGirls.Org meet-up. Since becoming a SoundGirls member and blogger, I feel like I’ve become part of an active online group where I can ask questions and get great advice from fellow technicians.

Dear SoundGirls.Org Members and Supporters,
Seasons Greetings. SoundGirls.Org wishes you a Happy Holiday Holiday Season and all the best in 2014.
It has been less than a year since we launched SoundGirls.Org and it has already expanded in directions that we could not envision a year ago. From the beginning we have been humbled by the amount of positive support from the industry and women worldwide. We have enjoyed meeting and connecting with talented women working in professional audio and sharing their stories with you. We are also encouraged by the amount of interest from young women and girls wishing to enter the field of sound.
In just nine months SoundGirls.Org has shared monthly profiles on women working in the industry, blogs dealing with real world problems, travel and adventure, and just starting out in the industry. We have brought you unique articles and interviews, and a wide range of topics in the forums. We want to remind you to check the website as new profiles, blogs, and articles are added weekly, and like us on Facebook for updates and articles of interest.
SoundGirls.Org joined Step Up Women’s Network last week to host a career day “Behind the Scenes of Music Industry” at the Rox. Step Up Women’s Network is a non-profit that works to empower teen girls from under-resourced communities to become confident, college-bound, and career-ready. The afternoon explored the fields of Professional Audio and Show Production and was joined by Pearl Jam monitor engineer and co-founder of SoundGirls.Org Karrie Keyes, Rat Sound’s Daniella Peters, Exec producer of the documentary Foo Fighters: Back and Forth, Jeanne Elfant Festa, and sound engineer at the Whiskey a Go Go Ruby Zamora. Nikki Reed actress, producer, and songwriter joined in the group discussions and invited the girls to watch sound check for the evenings performance. Nikki Reed and Paul McDonald performed songs from their new album for an evening benefit concert for Step Up Women’s Network.
