BLACK WOMEN IN MUSIC GLOBAL (BWMG) | FOUNDED 2018
Throughout diverse music industry work environments, Black women across the occupational and leadership spectrums may have to navigate structural biases, inequities, and inequalities within organizational cultures. The outcomes of such experiences can adversely impact Black women's overall well-being and occupational health, as well as influence the quality, pace, and progression of their career journeys, in this industry, more generally.
With the aim to improve conditions, Black Women In Music Global (BWMG) was set up in 2018 and soft-launched out of the top-performing global music markets, in North America and Europe, as an extension of its founder's cross-cultural psychological studies in this subject area. In establishing BWMG, it became the first research firm in the world dedicated to the in-depth psychological examination and improvement of Black women's, often discounted, workplace and career experiences throughout music and entertainment corporate ecosystems.
Today, BWMG (a subsidiary of The BIIRGS) is committed to providing industry data and human insights to design more inclusive and psychologically safer work environments for Black women and all employee groups to have fairer opportunities to succeed, with the removal of systemic and interpersonal barriers both deterring DEI efforts and deferring collaborative innovation.
