Liz Teutsch, Assistant Director of Academic Technology and Associate Professor at Berklee's Valencia campus will be presenting at the Women, Technology, and Creativity symposium.

The Berklee community is invited to a symposium featuring some of the industry's top producers, engineers, DJs, and beatmakers—all women who are innovative leaders in using technology to make music. Women, Technology, and Creativity is free and open to all Berklee students, faculty, and staff; alumni are also invited to the morning sessions in the Loft.

Afternoon workshops will be held in Studio One in Berklee's new 160 Massachusetts Avenue building, one presented by legendary artist Nona Hendryx (Labelle, Talking Heads) and one by indie rapper and producer K.Flay. Morning sessions in the Loft feature faculty members Chrissy Tignor-Fisher (Bastille, Notting Hill Music) and Erin Barra (Ableton product specialist, Beats by Girlz creator).

A morning panel brings together Hendryx, K.Flay, faculty members Susan Rogers (Prince, David Byrne), Leanne Ungar (Holly Cole, Guster, the Temptations), Tignor-Fisher, songwriting chair Bonnie Hayes (Bonnie Raitt, Cher), and moderator Ani Johnson (MonoMyth Media). The panel will examine how women use music technology, the challenges they face, and the ways in which women are currently taking up these tools to create, work, play, and inspire.

Women, Technology, and Creativity is sponsored by Ableton, Waves, Novation, Focusrite, Moog, and Berklee's Office for Diversity and Inclusion.
