ABOUT US

OUR MISSION STATEMENT

Girls Behind The Rock Show was founded on the principle of female empowerment within the music industry. We look to empower education through the creation of programs to give marginalized genders the opportunity to forge their dreams. We believe that when everyone has a voice, opportunity flourishes.

Girls Behind the Rock Show started as an idea on paper years ago to help more women become involved in the music industry. Over the years we have developed programs to help advance marginalized genders working within the music industry. Wherever they are in their career, we want to help them find their path, make connections and receive the education and support they need.

Girls Behind The Rock Show is a 501(c)3 Non-Profit Organization.

OUR IMPACT

In the past 4 years, we have been able to provide over 8,000 women and gender-nonconforming music industry professionals with career opportunities, internships, shadowing experiences, and more through our networking group. In Fall 2019, we conducted a survey of 700 group members and found that a majority of survey respondents have found both paid and unpaid work directly through the group. 

84% of survey respondents within the G.B.T.R.S. networking community have participated in paid work opportunities found through the group
52% of respondents in the G.B.T.R.S. networking community have participated in unpaid opportunities found through the group, including unpaid internships and volunteer work.
