The fourth annual Women in Music Awards today (10th November 2017), recognised the achievements of inspirational women in the music industry.
Among the winners was UK Music former CEO Jo Dipple who won the Outstanding Contribution Award for her lifelong commitment to the music industry.
During her nine years with UK Music, Jo led many successful campaigns, including UK Music’s campaign to stop cuts to BBC Music Services #LetItBeeb, a successful judicial review of Copyright Legislation and the development of annual research to examine the economic impact of the industry.
She was also integral in the introduction of the Live Music Act, and has driven change for young people in music, establishing the UK Music Skills Academy and creating around 70 apprenticeship opportunities within the sector.
Jo recently joined Live Nation as SVP, Public Affairs.
