We firmly believe that everyone should have the same choices and access to opportunities. Only 5% of the global Audio industry are non-male. We want to encourage more non-males to get into audio, which is why we are proactively supporting the #AudioEquityPledge, details of which can be found here.
Actions we are taking include:
Employing a diverse team - in 2018, more than 50% of our core team is made up of females
Creating an inclusive, encouraging and educational environment that is welcoming for all
Helping change perspectives amongst the wider audio community
Working with female collectives who are already helping girls and women in sound - Yorkshire Sound Women Network, Sound Girls, That’s Sound, The Malta Sound Women Network
Understanding and addressing unconscious bias
Recognising women and marginalised individuals for their skill and talent, not their gender, race or personal choices
Challenging the media representation of non-males in sound through the content we create
Listening to experiences of marginalised groups when they provide examples of what marginalising behaviours look and sound like
We welcome all contributions and comments to help us support this pledge.
We work with these groups, and if you are reading this, identify with any of these groups and want to get into audio, then we recommend you get in touch with them to get advice and support:
We encourage all of those working in education, industry, audio production and related fields to state their support of the pledge and put their own actions into place to create a more balanced Audio industry.
