Scripps Howard School of Journalism and Communications hosts Spotify’s Opening Act Roadshow at Hampton University

Spotify’s “The Opening Act Roadshow” came to Hampton University on Oct. 17, 2023, to an excited and engaged crowd of students. The Roadshow allows students to connect with thought leaders and executives from Spotify, a leading audio streaming platform, and learn about career opportunities with the organization.

A diverse audience of students from Hampton University attended the event to hear the insights of the Spotify team on the growing audio technology industry. Students heard from Kristin Jarrett, the Equity & Impact Strategy and Outreach Lead at Spotify, LaShanti Jenkins, the Global Head of Early Career Pipeline Team and a Hampton University alumna, Stefanie Austin, a recruiter on the Early Career Pipeline Team, and Briana Younger, the Editorial Lead of Hip Hop.

Another feature of the event was the music editorial workshop and an exciting playlist challenge where students created playlists to reflect a unique Hampton University sound. The competition was fierce with students showcasing their creativity and musical talent. Additionally, students learned about Spotify’s Global Summer Internship Program. An expanded partnership between the Scripps Howard School and Spotify will be announced at a later date.
