Equality, diversity, and inclusion of fundamental importance at The Ivors Academy. As the professional home for all music creators we take our responsibility to champion a more diverse and inclusive music industry seriously.
We strive to reflect the diversity of the UK creative music community in our organisation and seek to proactively help to break down the barriers of inequality so that anyone from any background can successfully pursue a career as a music creator.
Cultural diversity brings unlimited potential for excellence and innovation. Having a diverse and inclusive songwriter and composer community underpins a strong and healthy society.
We want to see a music industry that is free from discrimination and prejudice, where all music creators are treated equally and have the same opportunities for their talent to succeed irrespective of their identity or background.
While championing equality, diversity and inclusion is a long-standing priority at the Academy we recognise that much needs to change and we are committed to making progress.
