This webinar culminates a series of cultural partnership programs this year developed by The MLC’s Head of Third-Party Partnerships, Dae Bogan, that highlights The MLC’s commitment to diversity. Earlier this year, The MLC participated in The Recording Academy Los Angeles chapter’s Black music creator initiatives during Black History Month, and presented its own webinars highlighting the careers and works of LGBTQ music creators during Pride Month and Latin music creators around Cinco de Mayo and again during Hispanic Heritage Month.
The MLC welcomes discussions with organizations that aim to educate and empower music creators from historically marginalized or underrepresented communities as it continues to develop and expand on its cultural partnerships. To learn more, contact [email protected].
