UK Music Diversity Taskforce Ten-Point Plan and Diversity Report
The Association of Independent Music (AIM), welcomes the launch of the UK Music Diversity Report and its accompanying 10 point plan which lays out strategic actions to improve diversity and boost inclusion at UK music industry trade bodies. The Ten-Point Plan aligns evidence and metrics to strategic actions to help increase diversity and boost inclusion at the trade bodies that represent the majority of the UK music industry.
The report demonstrates that the UK music industry continues to make good progress on improving diversity, but more work is urgently needed in certain key areas such as representation and retention of both women and Black, Asian and minority ethnic communities at senior levels.
AIM is proudly committed to UK Music’s 10-point plan. Its publication follows AIM’s announcement that it will be pivoting its membership structure with a new, free Associate tier for every client of its independent Distributor Members to bring foundational music business knowledge to up to 100,000 music industry entrepreneurs at no cost. Free access to knowledge is a key resource for many working in the industry - last week, a British Business Bank report found that fewer Black, and Asian and Other Ethnic Minority entrepreneurs access valuable advice for free, relative to White entrepreneurs.
