STINNETT TO LEAD WMG DIVERSITY EFFORTS

Dr. Maurice Stinnett is joining Warner Music Group to spearhead WMG’s equity initiatives, and implement tailored strategies and programs designed to cultivate a diverse and inclusive company culture.

In the senior management role of Head of Global Equity, Diversity & Inclusion, Stinnett will report to Warner Music Group CEO Steve Cooper and work in partnership with Nina Bhagwat, Head of Inclusion & Diversity at Warner Music’s U.K. office.

“The past two months have seen an unprecedented reckoning in the fight against systemic racism and injustice. We’re committed to lasting change throughout our company and in our industry at large,” Cooper said. “Maurice brings impressive knowledge, experience, and passion to this important new post. He will be a dynamic leader who will hold us accountable to our promises and be a credible voice both within our company and in the global music community.”

Stinnett will collaborate with WMG’s People team on talent recruitment and development, and provide support to the company’s Executive Diversity & Inclusion Council as well as its various Employee Resource Groups.

He was most recently Vice President of Diversity, Inclusion, and Culture at BSE Global, whose operations include the NBA’s Brooklyn Nets, the WNBA’s New York Liberty and Brooklyn’s Barclays Center.

“Our business can and should lead the way in opening up a new era of diversity and inclusion,” Stinnett said. “We’re at a turning point in history, and there’s a genuine commitment and desire for real transformation and transparency at WMG.”
