Established in 2015, with Chair Keith Harris OBE, the Taskforce works with the music business, Government and other stakeholders to boost inclusion and diversity across the industry.
It includes representatives from the core industry sectors: major and indie record labels, music publishers, trade organisations, collection societies and the British live music industry.
In 2016, UK Music undertook the first industry-wide workforce diversity survey, focusing on gender and ethnicity. The latest survey was published in 2018.
In 2019 Keith Harris stepped down as Chair and Ammo Talwar MBE was appointed as the new Chair. The Co-Chair of the Taskforce is Paulette Long OBE.
