Representation and visibility are more than just a numbers game. If there is not diversity across the entire industry, then we are not able to drive genuine equal opportunities.

In this session, music researcher and DEI specialist, Sania Haq, will host a conversation with Charisse Beaumont, Chief Executive of Black Lives in Music (BLiM). The session will look at systemic barriers in music for Black, Asian and Ethnically Diverse individuals, as identified by BLiM’s research, along with how far we have come since the social reckoning of 2020, and critical improvements we still need to make.
