The gender imbalance in the music technology industry is well-recognised. While Saffron is absolutely not ‘anti-men’, we see that a shorter-term solution is to provide fellowship and learning environments that are not dominated by the cisgender male perspective. Therefore, 7 DAYS OF SOUND is intended for women, non-binary, trans and gender non-conforming folk to attend. While we do not ban cisgender men from attending, we hope that they will respect that this event is not intended for them.
