Diversify The Stage and Music Forward partnered to create a next-gen educational framework to help foster more diverse representation in the live entertainment industry through a masterclass series, one-on-one mentorships, and paid internship opportunities.

The inaugural Diversify the Stage x Music Forward masterclass series featured a specially selected cohort of young women of color interested in live music career pathways. During the masterclass series, the cohort connected directly with industry professionals from partners She Is The Music, Women In Music, and SoundGirls. The series was followed by mentorship and internship opportunities to provide access and opportunity to the next generation of diverse leaders and innovators.
