The Ivors Academy (work with their Youth Council and EDI initiatives)
Updated: Jan 18
I have been a member of the Ivors academy since 2020 and have been fortunate to be a member of their Youth Council. The Youth Council is an advisory group and whilst it doesn’t have decision-making authority, it informs and influences the agendas of the Ivors Senate and Board, and therefore the influences the campaigns and the events that the Ivors deliver.
I am also the chair of the Ivors LGBT+ working group, which was created as part of the Ivors’ policy for improving Equality, Diversity and Inclusion within the academy. The working group meets regularly to discuss opportunities within the industry, share ideas and experiences and talk about how we can make the industry a fairer and safer place for LGBT+ people.
I was honoured to be asked to host an ivors panel introducing the working group, which you can access here.
