ACADEMY NAMES GRANT AS TOP HR EXECUTIVE

The Recording Academy has tapped Shonda Grant as Chief People & Culture Officer, responsible for developing and expanding the organization's personnel strategy and managing all employee initiatives.

Grant will oversee all human resources functions for the Recording Academy, The Latin Recording Academy, MusiCares, Grammy Museum and the Latin Grammy Cultural Foundation, reporting directly to the President/CEO.

Grant, who has worked in Human Resources at the Academy for 19 years, played an integral role in hiring the Academy's first Chief Diversity & Inclusion Officer and MusiCares' new Executive Director.  

"She is an impressive leader with extensive knowledge and a proven track record," said Harvey Mason Jr., Chair & Interim President/CEO of the Recording Academy. "During this new era at the Academy, I'm confident that her experience, dedication, passion, and impressive growth mindset will take us into our next chapter—one that works toward creating a more diverse, inclusive and positive work culture."

As Chief People & Culture Officer, she will lead all transformational change programs, talent development and acquisitions, compensation processes and programs, employee safety and security, and employee well-being. She will also serve as a strategic partner and executive coach to the Academy's senior management team, Chapter executives and elected leaders.   

Grant serves as the Academy's delegate on the Hollywood Commission, an organization established to create an equitable future by defining and implementing best practices that eliminate sexual harassment and bias for all workers and actively promote a culture of accountability, respect and equality.
