The backstage of the live music industry remains the domain of a homogeneous group, consisting predominantly out of white male, sometimes making it an inhospitable environment for all others. Diversity seems to be on everybody’s wishlist, but recruiters often seem to struggle with getting a more diverse group of solicitors to apply for vacant jobs. So how can we make the backstage more inclusive? For this panel we’ve invited inspiring people dedicated to diversity within the music industry, as well as HR experts from outside, to see what we can learn from other areas of business.
Panelists: Malle Kaas (Women in Live Music), Kopi Ampoma (JNL Recruitment), Sakina Saouti (Code Diversity & Inclusive LKCA), Freyja Lawson (Well Hung PA)
