InChorus launches Electronic Music Inclusion Initiative

By | Published on Wednesday 14 April 2021


Pioneer DJ, Beatport, Sentric Music, AFEM, Mixmag, RA, IMS and Women in CTRL have all partnered with workplace harassment reporting software company InChrous to launch the Electronic Music Inclusion Initiative. The project aims to improve inclusiveness in electronic music.

The first stage of the project is a new survey, which will be available for four weeks, allowing anyone in the electronic music industry to anonymously speak up about microaggressions and other forms of harassment that they have experienced in the sector.

General Manager of Pioneer DJ, Mark Grotefeld, says: “Diversity and inclusion are key priorities for Pioneer DJ. We are proud to support the Electronic Music Inclusion Initiative in order to push for systemic change across the industry. We hope this will continue the progress and empower individuals to share their experiences of bias and harassment and encourage the industry to adopt robust listening tools that enable targeted action and progress”.

Co-founder of InChorus, Rosie Turner, adds: “We have a duty to prevent harassment of all kinds and cultivate a ‘speak up’ culture across the sector. Ultimately, cultures are shaped by the inappropriate behaviours that are tolerated every day. We are serious about culture change and believe that bringing actionable data to this conversation is key, as what is measured can be improved”.
