Universal Music Group is participating in a new initiative which sees it commit to creating ‘measurable change for representation of women and underrepresented racial/ethnic groups’.

The Annenberg Inclusion Initiative has been launched by Professor Stacy L. Smith at global research and advocacy think tank USC Annenberg in Los Angeles.

It builds on the work of the previously launched Media, Diversity & Social Change Initiative.

An Advisory Board has been appointed to reflect the new initiative’s expanded mandate. It includes Universal Music Publishing Group Chairman & CEO Jody Gerson.
