Electronic music organizations Pioneer DJ, Beatport, Sentric Music Group, AFEM, Mixmag, RA, IMS, and Women in CTRL partner with ground-breaking platform, InChorus, to launch the Electronic Music Inclusion Initiative (EMII) to take a data-led approach to address harassment and discrimination within the dance music industry.
This announcement comes after numerous claims have been made in the media over discrimination, sexual harassment, and toxic cultures within the dance music industry. Electronic Music Inclusion Initiative is determined to act on these claims through research using InChorus’ survey at the following link so that anyone can anonymously speak up about any forms of discrimination and harassment. The survey will be available for four weeks and will offer key insights into the behavioral trends affecting the industry.
“This first step for the Electronic Music Inclusion Initiative is designed to provide new insights on harassment, bias, and discrimination issues within our culture and inform the next steps we can collectively take as an industry to address them.”Greg Marshall, AFEM General Manager
“Diversity and inclusion are key priorities for Pioneer DJ. We are proud to support the Electronic Music Inclusion Initiative in order to push for systemic change across the industry. We hope this will continue the progress and empower individuals to share their experiences of bias and harassment and encourage the industry to adopt robust listening tools that enable targeted action and progress.”Mark Grotefeld, Pioneer DJ’s General Manager
The EMII will use its findings to take the necessary steps to target resources and provide support to individuals across the sector in order to promote inclusion.
