Room Three
11:00 - 12:00

Gone are the days when the music biz could simply ‘talk the talk’ about a more inclusive and balanced industry. The business is increasingly aware of the underrepresentation of women and non-binary people, so now it’s time to focus on how action can be taken to boost representation and oust gender disparity. From pledges to directories to maps, a number of leading organisations have published practical, industry-spanning resources to support the sector in its pursuit to be diverse. This session will hear from both the pioneers behind the projects, as well as the impact it’s had on the forward-thinking businesses that have adopted them, to ensure that good intentions can be converted into good practice.
