Music Masters is a charity that aims to make music accessible to all. The major challenge in a purpose-led organisation like Music Masters is to improve access and drive change. Many of the actions taken on diversity and inclusion in the music sector have historically been at the individual or company level.
Included participated in a panel discussion at Southbank Centre entitled ‘Class, Race and Classical Music’. The team worked with academics, authors, and music professionals, and participated in a series of talks including the one at the Southbank Centre. We then helped Music Masters to imagine a practical diversity tool that might change the sector.
I’M IN, Music Masters’ inclusive music index that was years in the making, has arrived at a critical moment. The work performed by Music Masters in recent years represents readiness for it, marking a significant step forward for the music industry.
“We look forward to working together with many more organisations to create a more inclusive music sector – a sector that genuinely welcomes, nurtures and appreciates diverse talent at every level and in every role.”

Behaviours were also inconsistent from agency to agency, with levels of understanding on diversity and inclusion mixed. In some cases there were overtly uninclusive behaviours and challenging cultural aspects across the agencies, with leaders not always...
