PAULINE ALDERMAN AWARDS
IAWM grants the Pauline Alderman Awards for outstanding scholarship on women in music every two to three years, in three categories.
This grant is to help teachers bring a greater focus on women in music to their students through professional development, materials, commissions, guest artists, or other media.
Recognizing the accomplishments of IAWM member composers and fosters our mission of increasing awareness of the musical contributions of women.
Every three years, IAWM’s conferences offer opportunities for women in all facets and disciplines of music to come together to examine and discuss the equity, promotion and advocacy of women in music. The gatherings feature a broad range of music, challenging scholarship and innovative technology.
The Spotlights Program for IAWM’s Social Media Sites and YouTube allow members to showcase their accomplishments and increase the awareness of the musical contributions of women globally.
WEBINARS – BEYOND THE NOTES…
BEYOND THE NOTES is a webinar series bringing you presentations, workshops, seminars and interactive dialog and performance. The purpose of the webinars is to provide women in all disciplines in music with information and resources to engage with others, and to help develop and further their professional careers.
Since 2004, the IAWM has used the Radio Requests campaign to promote broadcasts of music by women composers. Every week, participants in the IAWM’s listserv and visitors to this Web page are encouraged to ask local and Internet stations to play work by a chosen woman composer.
