The organization that conducts the Grammys and an online racial justice organization announced a partnership Tuesday to promote positive social change within the music industry.
The Recording Academy has also made a $1 million donation to Color of Change.
“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,” a 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.”
Color of Change will also provide advisory support on the development and implementation of the academy’s previously announced industry inclusion rider and toolkit, which will be introduced later in 2020, the statement said.
