Equality, Diversity & Inclusion at the MU

The MU’s mission is to create an equitable music industry where all musicians can thrive. We’re committed to doing the same with our workplaces.

As our membership becomes more diverse, we’re working to make sure our teams reflect our members.

At the MU we welcome people with diverse perspectives, experiences, and backgrounds. You’ll be encouraged to be your authentic self and you’ll have the freedom to develop professionally and personally in a supportive and empowering workplace.

We understand that we learn best when we learn from each other. You can expect that your opinions and ideas will be valued and treated with respect.

Actions speak louder than words so to further our culture of inclusion, we invest in several ED&I initiatives, including:

  • A recently established Global Majority Employees Network
  • A commitment to the UK Music 10-point plan and the 5P’s to embed ED&I in every area of the MU
  • Regular ED&I training to promote inclusion and develop understanding
  • Mental Health First Aiders and access to an Employee Assistance programme
  • Menopause Champions
  • Flexible and hybrid working arrangements.

There is more work to be done, but we are committed to cultivating a culture of diversity and inclusion because it makes us a stronger, more successful Trade Union.
