There have been some concerning stories about sexual harassment and discrimination within the electronic music industry in recent months. Now a new Electronic Music Inclusion Initiative is launching to tackle some of the root causes. It’s a partnership between Pioneer DJ, Beatport, Sentric Music Group, Afem, Mixmag, RA, IMS, Women in Ctrl and InChorus.

The project is starting with a survey open to anyone working in the sector to submit their experiences and provide “new insights on harassment, bias and discrimination issues within our culture and inform the next steps we can collectively take as an industry to address them” according to Afem boss Greg Marshall.

Data from the four-week survey will then filter in to the organisation’s next steps. “Women in Ctrl encourage all across the EDM industry to come forward, speak out and share their experiences so we can have tangible data to identify key issues and work on solutions to make the industry a safer and more inclusive place,” said that organisation’s founder Nadia Khan.

Music Ally’s next Learn Live webinar will help you build the strategies for artists to thrive in new international markets!
