Manatt Entertainment partner Monika Tashman was recognized on Billboard’s 2019 Women in Music Top Executives list for her work with Women in Music. Together, they are working to develop the Women in Music Workplace Initiative, which will name the best music companies for women and aims to raise gender diversity and equality standards in the industry.
In her Women in Music profile, Tashman identifies metadata and verification problems as the most urgent issue facing the music industry today. “Every minute of every day, the metadata and verification problem is getting worse,” she said. “This is causing money to disappear into the ether or be claimed by third parties.”
