Nina is a strong advocate for equal rights and equal pay. She ensures that mothers on her team are offered more flexibility in their contracts to allow them to balance work and family. She has created a training programme for interns, many of whom are women, to enable them to develop their potential, help them build their confidence and to support them in their next career steps. The programme has led to an increased number of young professionals being offered long-term jobs at Warner Music Central Europe after successful internships. Nina keeps closely connected with all her female former employees to offer support and networking opportunities. Externally, Nina was a member of the Board of Trustees and speaker at the newly-founded Recorded Music Summer School in 2018. Alongside designing modules and lectures on the course, Nina held a lecture with two other female marketing experts in Music, providing a great opportunity for young female professionals to gain more insight into the Music industry, to get a clearer idea of potential employers and to find female mentors to guide them on their career paths.
