Warner Music Group is launching the Global DEI (Diversity, Equity and Inclusion) Institute as part of its overall commitment to cultural and social change.

Led by WMG’s first Global Head of Diversity, Dr. Maurice A. Stinnett, the DEI will serve as an employee hub of learning and action, bringing in experts, innovators and other thought leaders.

“It’s not enough to just acknowledge problematic histories or the resulting discrimination and miseducation that remain in place," WMG CEO Steve Cooper said. "We’ve got to actively break them down and build up new, equitable, inclusive environments where all people can belong—and we’ve got to do it together. [The DEI] will help us continuously develop a culture of education and empowerment for our employees, artists and songwriters around the globe.”

The Institute’s programming includes offerings from authors Roxane Gay and Dr. Mark Anthony Neal, a rotating set of workshops and a DEI Innovation Lab, which will accelerate strategies to enhance equity, diversity and inclusion internally.
