European independent music body Impala has adopted a new diversity and inclusion charter, which is the work of the diversity task force it set up in June this year amid the #TheShowMustBePaused movement.
“Not discriminating isn’t enough. We must be anti-discriminatory and consciously inclusive,” is the guiding principle behind the new charter, which Impala says is following European fundamental rights including gender, ethnicity, religion, belief, disability, age, sexual orientation and political beliefs.
The charter, which you can read in full here, has 12 promises: regular surveys measuring the independent music sector’s diversity in Europe; mapping and sharing ways companies are taking action positively; having a diversity advocate on Impala’s board and each of its committees; and more.
