MMF Chair appeared on BBC’s Victoria Derbyshire show today (18th December) to discuss sexual harassment in the music industry.
Diane appeared on the show alongside Michelle de Vries, Helienne Lindvall, Chloe Howl & Yasmin Lajoie.
The MMF Code of Practice was developed in 2013 and reviewed in 2017 – all members of the MMF sign up to this code upon joining. Building on the Code and its intentions to help support the knowledge, standing and professional reputation of the Music Manager, we have processes in place that sets out how the MMF will act if a member is considered to have breached the Code of Practice. This includes case of sexual harassment.
A new campaign has also been launched – Stop 2018. If you have witnessed or experienced sexual harassment in the music industry, they are inviting you to tell them about your experiences in confidence – they will then use this information to work with organisations to ensure safety measures are in place to protect people in the future.
