Global Forum: Inclusivity and Accountability - Bringing Measurable Change for the Music Industry
The 2018 Global Forum at Canadian Music Week will bring together artists and advocates working to bring meaningful change for the music industry so it can benefit from a wider spectrum of viewpoints, sounds and skills. Dr. Stacy Smith of the Annenberg Inclusion Initiative, who pioneered the now viral concept of an “inclusion rider,” will present the keynote address, followed by a panel of Canadian and international leaders challenging the status quo.
All participants will then have the opportunity to take part in table discussions during which they will be encouraged to make a pledge detailing a specific way they will work to improve inclusion on behalf of themselves or their organization.
