The UK’s Music Publishers Association (MPA) is creating a Diversity, Equality and Inclusion Council, and it is looking for experts to help guide its policies.

The body wants “highly experienced and high-profile, policy strategists and public influencers” to become members of the council, which will meet on a quarterly basis.

The MPA says that the council’s formation is a response to a lack of diversity in the executive ranks of the music publishing sector.

“One of our strategic priorities over the past year has been a review of the music publishing sector to work out why we do not have executive talent that is reflective of society nor of the creators that we all cherish and listen to on a daily basis,” said chair Roberto Neri. “After so many words and deep discussions, I am extremely thankful for the commitment of the Board and the MPA membership, to allow us to create this Council and to find appropriate members that will provide full focus on addressing this issue head on.”

Potential council members can contact the MPA at this email address to register their interest.
