How these Activites will benefit our community
This particular group are very underrepresented and have had limited access to practical support, training, mentoring or advice as little framework exists within the music industry particularly electronic music. We will deliver a structured package of services to ease the transition of aspiring professionals within this group into the music industry as well as supporting those of the group of people who are already working within music to feel fairly treated, safe and included.
As a community who are underrepresented and discriminated against they are at a disadvantage to other peers of having their creative work presented and platformed. The aim is to improve opportunities for this group and to advance their progression, visibility and position within music by giving them and their work elevation and amplification through the outlined activities

Our existing partnerships with key stakeholders and organisations will help us to build services to provide the essential support.
Our experience, knowledge and reputation within diversity, equity and inclusion within music and the music industry gives us a prime position to lead in giving the sector the support it needs to tackle its misogynistic and sexist culture so that it can offer a more positive experience and imprint in society.
We will create working partnerships by building on existing relationships/ and engaging in new relationships agencies, organisations and individuals both across and outside of music who have a vested interest in benefiting the community. We are in a unique position because of our experience, visibility and network to bring resources together to assist in the goals of the CIC
To date there has been little focus historically on the depth of the suffering of this community because of misogyny and sexism, if we highlight the extent of this culture as well as providing solutions to ignite change we will start to take steps in eradicating attitudes and belief systems that uphold the current structures that are serving no one positively. By giving the marginalised a voice which they often do not have, we are honouring and respecting their struggle whilst taking proactive steps to change it.
