The Recording Academy has announced a new partnership with GLAAD, the world’s largest LGBTQIA+ media advocacy group, to support its work promoting diversity in the music industry. The partnership will see the Recording Academy implement DEI training sessions hosted by GLAAD for Recording Academy staff & elected leaders, prepare editorial content for both organizations’ websites & social channels that highlight LGBTQIA+ artists, support the 33rd Annual GLAAD Media Awards, and make a $150,000 donation to GLAAD.
“We’re thrilled to double-down on our commitment to LGBTQ+ inclusion in partnership with GLAAD to inspire a culture of belonging and respect within the music industry,” said Recording Academy Board of Trustees Chair Tammy Hurt. “This partnership embodies our joint commitment to accelerate progress for LGBTQ+ voices and ensure that the music community is representative of the many diverse artists who contribute to and call this industry home.”
