Sony Music Group’s Global Social Justice Fund was created in June 2020 to support social justice, equal rights and anti-racist initiatives around the world, and is part of the global Sony Music Group commitment to support communities and help address structural inequality for lasting change.
Through the Social Justice Fund we aim to help provide and broaden opportunities for individuals in under-served communities and to improve education, skills and life chances. The fund serves to impact hard-to-reach young people, future music industry executives and artists who might otherwise struggle to break through.
The UK beneficiaries are chosen by a diverse advisory board representing labels and divisions across Sony Music UK, from label presidents to members of Sony Music’s diversity, equity and inclusion committee, HUE (Helping Unite Everyone).
As well as providing the beneficiaries with funding, Sony Music UK is dedicated to supporting these causes on a truly holistic level, with employees and artists becoming involved through volunteering their time and skills, mentorship, leading workshops and more.
