The action Gender Agenda by INAMU has been recognized and commended by the Regional Bureau for Science of UNESCO for Latin America and the Caribbean.
In 2018, helping to improve the conditions in which musical activities and events took place in Argentina, INAMU began to work on a Federal Gender Agenda, in order to carry out different actions.
During the first year of the initiative, thirteen federal meetings were held with more than 1,000 women in the music industry, seeking to establish a link to reinforce the presence, strategies and leadership of women both at the individual and collective level so that they are able to participate on an equal footing, in terms of access to resources, recognition and decision-making. The proposal to create a Digital Survey in order to collect specific information on some aspects of the reality of women in the music industry in Argentina emerged from those meetings, and more than 4,000 women responded to the survey.
In 2019, the Agenda proposed six Federal Forums, one per region of the country, with participants from every province, who engaged in debates about strengths and weaknesses music industry workers face in the territory where they belong. In those meetings, which also included training and working groups to discuss the different issues identified, there were wonderful encounters that made it possible to focus on the realities of the industry and the necessary improvements to achieve fairer and more equitable conditions, something that is owed to women after years of invisibilization and patriarchal practices that have become the norm.
In 2020, the Agenda started working on an awareness device intended to eradicate the violence that has been recognized in live music spaces.
