Sony Music Group Welcomes the Third Cohort of SMG Impact Fellows

This Summer, Sony Music Group (SMG) is welcoming the third cohort of the SMG Impact Fellows Program. The program launched in 2021 as a partnership with 4A’s Multicultural Advertising Intern Program (MAIP), and has since expanded to include American Indigenous Business Leaders (AIBL), Lime Connect, Out For Undergrad (O4U) and Scholarships Plus. Through these partnerships, we accelerate and strengthen our efforts to recruit, develop, and retain diverse entry-level talent. 

This year’s cohort is comprised of 15 fellows—the largest class yet!—working across multiple record labels and at Sony Music Publishing, on various teams such as: People eXperience, Premium Content, International Marketing, Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, Publicity, Global Brand Partnership, Soundtrack Film/TV & Licensing, Radio Promo, Digital Marketing, Artist Development, and Brand Partnerships. 

Welcome to the team, 2023 Impact Fellows!

The SMG Impact Fellows Program was launched in 2021 and aims to provide college students from underrepresented communities the unique opportunity to learn about and experience the music industry during a 10-week summer fellowship, supplemented by professional development opportunities and programming from their host organizations.  

This year, we evolved the fellowship by extending its program to include: 

  • Office tours 
  • Insights discovery workshops 
  • Meet & greet with senior leaders 
  • Impact Fellow showcase 
  • Participating in internal DE&I discussions
