Julie Greifer Swidler '79

Julie Greifer Swidler '79 and several other top women executives at major record labels and music publishers recently wrote a letter to the Recording Academy’s board of trustees after its president, Neil Portnow, said women need to “step up” to advance their music careers. According to a recent New York Times article, the executives call the academy “‘woefully out of touch with today’s music, the music business, and even more significantly, society,’ and say that the organization, which presents the Grammys, needs to become more inclusive and transparent.” Julie is general counsel of Sony Music.

At Union, she was a member of Student Government and WRUC Radio.
