In 2020, Women in CTRL used their collective voice to make the industry stop, listen and change. There has been some progress in the last year, which they have highlighted in the report, but change is an ongoing process and we are still far off from equality.
The report’s key findings include:
- Female representation has increased, but women are still underrepresented
- Across the 12 organisations 42% of board members are women, an increase from 34% on 2020
- In 2020 9% of Chairs were women, the equivalent of one female Chair across the 12 organisations. This figure is now 27%, with three female Chairs
- CEOs remains unchanged at 27%, or three women
- Representation of Black women has doubled, but from a very low base
- The share of board seats held by Black women has doubled to 6% (11), from 3% (5) in 2020.
- There are still no Black women CEOs or Chairs
The report also includes powerful quotes from over 100 women across the music industry, including the MU’s Deputy General Secretary Naomi Pohl.
