The event, geared towards young women, will be held in Atlanta on Thursday, May 24th.
Artist development & branding manager, Lola Plaku, works alongside some of hip-hop’s top recording artists (including French Montana and Belly), executing marketing initiatives tied to their music projects and brand partnership campaigns.
Plaku has forged her own path in the male-dominated music industry, and is passionate about opening doors for other women by way of her Girl Connected mentorship program, which will hold its first event in Atlanta on May 24th, in partnership with WeWork. Girl Connected, pairs aspiring female professionals with Plaku’s successful industry colleagues, to learn the various aspects of the music business — A&R, creative, marketing, etc.
The mission is to empower women (particularly young women) with the necessary tools, values and connections to foster career development. Girl Connected will hold additional events in various cities through out the year.
