- In the News: How Sony Music Is Supporting Global Social Justice Today
- Jul 13, 2021
HR news outlet HRD Connect spoke in-depth to the Co-Chairs of Sony Music UK’s Social Justice Fund — Damaris Rex Taylor, Dorothy Hui, and Charlotte Edgeworth — about how our UK company seeks to support social justice in the country, sharing progress and initiatives since the fund’s launch in June 2020.
The article outlines that the fund has so far contributed around $25 million to more than 300 organisations championing anti-racist initiatives, and explores how Sony Music UK found new ways to support charity partners’ work during lockdown.
Charlotte Edgeworth, Sony Music’s Director of D&I and Social Impact, says “Like any new entity, we are learning and developing as we go along. We look for charities doing great work in our key areas and work with them to identify how we can maximise our impact.”
Whilst the piece recognises that it’s still early days, it notes that the incredible work the Social Justice Fund partners are doing is already being seen and that Sony Music UK will continue to help address stereotypes and injustices faced by communities of colour.
