Recording: Where Does Diversity in Music Begin and End?, Mar 16, 2023

Has diversity simply become lip service in the music industry to appease whistleblowers or can we imagine a future where it’s built into the DNA of how companies are structured, how talent is discovered and how label deals are crafted? In many ways, the business of music has not yet caught up to the diversity currently being experienced and celebrated in the music itself and the talent labels represent. In this panel, we’ll speak to industry professionals and managers about how a lack of diversity in the boardroom has long term and decisive repercussions in the recording studio.
