Innovative Inclusion: Closing the Diversity Gap


It goes without saying that the global, Covid-19 pandemic–appropriately nicknamed “The Great Accelerator”–put the spotlight on the pre-existing, social challenges that would no longer be deemed “inappropriate talk at work.” The music biz, which is no stranger to constant change, finds itself once again facing profound organizational shifts due to societal and technological influences. On this panel, Naledi Nyahuma Seck, The Orchard’s VP of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion will moderate a discussion on how companies are lowering the barriers to entry and successfully merging culture and commerce.
