The Recording Academy, which describes itself as the world’s leading society of music creators, and Color of Change, an online racial justice organization, Tuesday announced they have forged a partnership to promote “positive” social change within the music industry.
In addition to the partnership, the Recording Academy has made a $1 million donation to Color of Change, according to a statement.
“The organizations will work together to identify key opportunities to drive and influence change in the music industry, and will be dedicated to building power for Black music creators and professionals,” the statement said.
“This work will span several strategies, including the creation of a Black music advisory group, a membership campaign focusing on the Black music community to drive new voting members to the Academy, an industrywide diversity and inclusion summit and partnership in advocacy and legislative efforts. Additionally, Color of Change will provide advisory support on the development and implementation of the Academy’s previously announced industry Inclusion Rider and Toolkit, which will be introduced in later in 2020.”
