About Us

Thank You For Taking The Time To Visit Why Not Her?

At the core of change comes unity. Why Not Her? began as a movement made by a unity of womxn that came together enacting positive change within our society. That movement led to a meeting of minds with some of the best Culture Changers in the industry to create a company that seeks to share one of the biggest powers we have; knowledge. We are all about demonstrating and indeed using your human rights: equality, diversity and inclusion. Be it in our activism and campaigning work or in our teaching workshops and seminars, we want to share our knowledge with you.

We want to show you how you can be part of the solution and not the problem.

Everything starts with communication and at Why Not Her? we welcome everyone to the conversation of gender equality, diversity and inclusion, as it’s one that should be had. It is an important issue in our society and culture today. As well as offering Mentorship towards Culture Change within your company, team or organisation, we offer D&I services and training. We have a group of hard-working people who are making huge strides in enacting change.

Why do we do what we do?

Despite significant progress towards womxn’s economic independence, we are still economically disadvantaged in many ways. We work towards changing that system by catering towards workshops and training/mentor programmes with teams, companies and people who wish to be part of the solution and who are ready to shift towards Equality, Diversity and Inclusion. We do what we do because YOU matter. Regardless of where you come from, the colour of your skin or the society you were born into. We must support and lift each other up, when we work together for a better world, we rise together.

Our Volunteer Work With Gender and Racial Driven Data Reports:

Womxn are still far less likely to be in the labour force and more than four times more likely to work on a part-time basis than men. In Ireland, across all workforces, womxn on average earn less than 14.4 % than men and are less likely to work in occupations that are highest paid. Womxn are 25 times more likely to look after their home and family and leave behind their ambitions.

We have brought to light how disadvantaged womxn and people of colour are within the music industry in Ireland & the UK in comparison to their white male counterparts by publishing a series of Gender and Racial Disparity Data reports. These reports have set the precipice for a lot of change to come, setting off one of the biggest and most historic equality and diversity movements in Irish and Uk music industry history.

Data is a tool to enact change:

We have learned that data is power. And with data research studies and reports, we wish to empower you to be the change you want to see in the world, your community or your country.

We launched the first report in June 2020 and it went viral, and the Uk report followed in August 2020, followed by additional reports throughout 2021. These reports combined went on to be viewed, shared and exposed to close to 150 million people, as well as trending 5 times on Twitter and being featured in most of the press publications in Ireland and some of the largest publications in the UK.

Our data reports have exposed a harsh reality that womxn in Ireland & the UK music scene face in the professional playing field.

Our #WhyNotHer Campaign saw thousands of Irish people send in images of solidarity for the campaign to diversify the Irish airwaves.

We are here to try to ensure that a gender quota and gender equality is realised by enabling those who wish to challenge the government or seek legislative change and arm them with data and facts.

When we come together as a united force of people from all creeds, gender, colour, age and orientation who are no longer accepting inequity and gender bias; anything is possible and we should never ever be afraid to ask the question Why Not Her?
