Independent music body Impala is launching a new survey of diversity and inclusion in European independent music companies.
The organisation is asking indies across the continent to respond to the survey, to help it to understand the demographic makeup of the sector, and then to steer its future policies.
“It’s great to see this survey online, we invested a lot of time and effort to design it and we’ve been working on this for a while now,” said Eva Karman Reinhold, co-chair of Impala’s diversity task force. “We ask all independents across Europe to complete our survey so we can collect useful data and share best practices within Europe. There is no one-size-fits-all strategy to tackle diversity issues, each territory needs to adapt according to their own situation,” added executive chair Helen Smith.
