What does WIJO do?

WIJO aims to improve the experience of women and non-binary people in Jazz through focusing our work on three main goals:

  • To empower individuals within the organization

  • To create an inclusive environment that fosters solidarity, connects, and strengthens the intersectional community of women and non-binary people in Jazz

  • To address inequalities in Jazz culture and on the Jazz scene
