A forum to update music industry stakeholders on what UK Music and its members have been doing to implement parts of the UK Music 10-Point Plan.

In October 2020, as part of the UK Music Diversity Report 2020, UK Music’s members signed up to the 10-Point Plan which mapped out objectives towards boosting equity, diversity and inclusion, particularly around Race and Gender, in the music industry.

At the end of 2021 the UK Music Diversity Taskforce undertook the Moving The Dial On Diversity Review to assess the progress made against the UK Music 10-Point Plan and published its results along with case studies.

On 16 February 2022, 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm, BBM/BMC (BritishBlackMusic.com/Black Music Congress), in association with music industry representative body UK Music, is providing a forum to update music industry stakeholders on what UK Music and its members have been doing to implement parts of the UK Music 10-Point Plan.

Hear Ammo Talwar MBE and Paulette Long OBE, Chairman and Deputy Chairwoman respectively of the UK Music Diversity Taskforce, share some personal stories and broad overview around progress the music industry has made benchmarking the 10-Point Plan (which had a sharp focus on race and gender), the challenges it still faces and how EDI impact is measured, one year on from its report release.

Conversation and Q&A moderated by Kwaku (BBM/BMC).

The findings of the review and process gives the UK music industry, Government and other key stakeholders an unparalleled insight into where improvements are needed, highlighting best practices, whilst also gazing into the next few years of research and development in this space.
