As a member-led organisation, the MU often asks for members' opinions on a whole range of topics to ensure that our work represents your views. Our equality networks are an important part of this process.

We have four major equality network groups and a Young Member Network:

  • A Network for musicians who experience racism - this group is open to members from Black, Asian and minority ethnic backgrounds.
  • An LGBT+ Network which is open to members who identify as part of the LGBT+ community.
  • A Women Members Network which is open to all female members
  • A Disabled Network for members who identify as a D/deaf and disabled people.
  • A Young Members Network

Network members receive regular updates on our equalities work via newsletters, as well as the opportunity to contribute to MU consultation responses and take part in surveys.

As a network member there is no obligation for you to respond to emails, although the more you contribute, the more the MU can reflect members’ views.
