British music body UK Music has launched an industry workforce diversity survey, with the aim of generating sturdy data on gender and ethnicity within UK music businesses. The survey’s launch came before today’s UK Music Diversity Summit in London, with plans to repeat it in future years to track progress.
“The economic and cultural success of British music over the last couple of years has been astronomical. For us to continue such success we need a strong entry-point pipeline of diverse talent as well as career progression and a diverse management at the top,” said UK Music CEO Jo Dipple. “It seems obvious, but businesses with boards which properly reflect the public and the consumer do better than businesses with boards that do not.” You can find the survey via the link below. It launched as MusicTank released a report called ‘Diversity Management in the UK Music Industry – The Thoughts & Perspectives of Black Employees’ by Tamara Witt, which is the second link below.
