Change in Tempo: Diversity & Inclusion in Music

Diversity and inclusion are top-of-mind issues in music and nearly every other industry, and while mainstream attention to these initiatives are a major step forward, labels, studios and executives are largely clueless on how to implement them. To make strides toward a more equal and accurately represented music biz, there is an urgency for increased youth engagement, mindful employee retention on all sides of the industry, more diverse representation on music platforms and record labels, and the introduction of industry standards and strategic hiring practices.

Women at the forefront of these vital initiatives offer a blueprint for how companies and individuals in music can take real and immediate steps on these pillars of action to begin the long road toward equality.
