In this, the 10th and final workshop in CIMA x BDRB “Next Steps” Equity, Diversity & Inclusion Workshop series, we will explore the role of race-based data collection and its centrality to the BDRB Declaration and Report.
We will explore the importance of responsible collection, analysis, and use of this data in identifying and eliminating systemic and structural racism within companies and organizations in the music and creative industries, and the ways in which the lack of such data perpetuates systemic racism; as well as the steps which can be taken to diminish and ultimately eliminate it.
Participants will learn about the ways in which race-based data can uncover inequity, improve outreach, and access, and inform policy and service provision, grant programs and jury selection processes, and increasing representation of systemically excluded music and creative industries professionals.
Overall, this workshop will equip participants with a starting point in the collection, analysis and use of race-based data in uncovering inequity and increasing representation of systemically excluded music and creative industries professionals.
THE ENTIRE INDUSTRY.

“Breaking Down Racial Barriers” was initiatied as a Black led, music & entertainment industry roundtable discussion series. Initiated, curated and coordinated by Canadian music and entertainment community mainstays Ian Andre Espinet and David “Click” Cox, presented by The Canadian Independent Music Association, supported by ADVANCE, Canada's Black Music Business Collective and 22 of CIMA's peer and partner organizations.
Taking place via 10 Zoom sessions, from August 4th 2020 - October 6th 2020, the roundtable series on anti-Black racism in the Canadian music and entertainment industry featured over 60 working Black music professionals from across the country.
BDRB is presently authoring a CIMA commissioned, ADVANCE supported report on anti-Black racism in the Canadian music industry which will aggregate accumulated knowledge and create actionable solutions. These suggestions will be shared with the wider community with the understanding that it can, if embraced, inform how policies and practices can and should be reformed.
On June 2nd 2021, the one-year anniversary of #BlackOutTuesday, corporations and organizations and individuals from the Canadian music industry gathered for the signing event for The Declaration to End Anti-Black Racism in the Canadian Music Industry. The document has been signed by over 500 to date.
BDRB is currently consulting with organizations and corporations nationwide to improve equity in their spaces via diversity and inclusion.
