Diversity and Inclusion

UK Music Workforce Diversity Survey


UK Music, the collective voice of the music industry, has launched its Workforce Diversity Survey. 

The survey tracks progress to boost diversity and inclusion in the UK’s music industry.  This survey focuses on those who work behind the scenes in the industry, rather than those who are on stage. 

Led by UK Music’s Diversity Taskforce, the survey collates data from across the music business including studios, management agencies, music publishers, major and independent record labels, music licensing companies and the live music sector. 

Launched in 2016, the findings of the survey give the music industry, Government and other stakeholders a critical insight into where improvements are needed regarding diversity and inclusion – and highlights where positive change is already under way. 

The survey takes place every two years and UK Music will publish the results of the survey later this year as part of a report.  

To get the most accurate picture of the diversity of the industry we need everyone working in the industry to fill this survey out.

Last year’s report found:  

  • Proportion of women increased from 45.3% in 2016 to new high of 49.6% in 2020.
  • Number of people from Black, Asian and other ethnic minority communities at entry-level rises from 23.2% in 2018 to new high of 34.6% in 2020.
  • Number of women in the 45-64 age group drops from 38.7% in 2018 to 35% in 2020.
  • Representation of Black, Asian and other ethnic minorities at senior executive levels rises from 17.9% in 2018 to new high of 19.9% – but that means they fill just one in five senior posts.
