Music Forward and BMG have been collaborating together on mentorship and internship programs leading to full-time roles for our youth with the industry leader. Our first partnered mentorship program in fall 2021, paired BMG professionals in one-to-one mentorships with a diverse group of college-age youth pursuing music industry careers. The BMG mentors met regularly with their mentees throughout the fall semester, supporting them in creating professional development plans, building their networks, and planning their futures.

In 2022, we have continued championing a more inclusive music industry by placing our young people in paid BMG internship positions across offices in Los Angeles, New York, and Nashville. We’re excited to report that over 25% of the spring interns were offered full-time roles with BMG at the end of their internship and that we will also be continuing our mentorship program together this fall. We are making real change in the industry and can’t wait to see the impact of our continued partnership!
