We.Grow at ADE Mentoring Program


We.Grow at ADE Mentoring Program

shesaid.so has been working with ADE since 2017 and has always focussed on diverse and inclusive programming in the music industry. In 2019 the partnership went to the next level with we.grow at ADE - a mini-mentoring program that paired 10 senior-level members from the shesaid.so community with mentees selected by ADE University.

In 2022 the mentoring program is back under a new, inclusive name, we.grow at ADE. This year five mentees from the electronic music sphere and five mentees with a more specific focus on the web3 space will be invited along. For the electronic music track of the scheme, YouTube Music and Meta are partners and will host two brunch events for mentors and mentees… mmmm!

The web3 track is in partnership with ZORA, the open protocol to buy, sell and curate NFTs on Ethereum. Web3 is a growing technology area that is rapidly changing the music industry on a daily basis and it is we.grow's desire to educate the community about opportunities within it and offer them the chance to learn from and make connections with the best leaders in this space.

For the regular electronic music track, we are also teaming up with YouTube Music and Meta who are hosting two brunch events for our mentors and mentees. This is an opportunity for us to create connections for the we.grow participants to these powerful companies.


Submission period has been extended to Thursday, Oct 13th

Please note that after sign up, the She Said So team will pick 10 lucky mentees to follow this years' We.Grow mentorship. Mentees will be contacted ultimately on October 15th.
