The Equality, Diversity and Inclusion in Music Studies Network is delighted to announce a new series of events starting in spring 2021.
EDIMS Open Forum events are intended primarily for staff and students in the Music HE sector, as a space for discussion, exchange of ideas and reflection on current practice.
Events will take place twice termly and each will feature two Music HE institutions/departments and one industry/charity sector speaker talking about their EDI work.
