InChorus Group is a newly established platform created to target the issue of bias and discrimination in the music industry.
Genevieve O’Neil, previous director of diversity and inclusion at Live Nation, has joined the InChorus Group as CMO.
InChorus Group records incidents of bias and harassment in the music biz, as well as providing companies with information on how to create and increase inclusivity in the workplace.
The platform works by making the process of reporting employees simpler, as it allows users to anonymously flag incidents in the workplace. It enables companies to access the anonymised data with the hope to prevent issues sooner rather than later.
O’Neil commented: “We are in desperate need of a user friendly, data-led tool such as this to get things moving in the right direction. This online tool is ideal for all companies, those already on the path to an inclusive workplace, and those just starting out.”
“Diversity and inclusion leadership starts at the top, and so I ask industry leaders to stop just thinking about it and start acting.”
Rosie Turner, co-chief executive of InChorus Group said she is “passionate about giving employees a voice and allowing them to flag issues sooner before they escalate. This data has the power to drive effective change for both employees and the business, and to create a baseline for the music industry as a whole”.
