The music industry’s track record in gender equality and diversity is now a regular topic of conversation. Thanks to this increased awareness we are beginning to see the signs of real change; from social media campaigns, gender balance pledges, and grass roots, anti-harassment movements, it’s no longer acceptable to look the other way. But where does responsibility lie when it comes to building on this progress and creating a more inclusive industry? What needs to change first and who will drive this? Does the music industry need more national or international collaborations? And what practical things can we do as individuals to create a more balanced, successful industry? Hear from leading artists & industry execs on what we can do now as the next generation pushes for change.
