RECORDING ACADEMY INVITES 900 NEW MEMBERS
 

Responding to a call for greater diversity among the people who determine Grammy Awards nominations and wins, The Recording Academy has invited 900 new members and shifted the composition of two key committees.

 

The Nominations Review Committee is now 51% female, up from 28% last year, and 48% people of color, a rise from 37%. The National Governance Committee is now 48% female and 38% people of color; last year, those figures were 20% female and 30% people of color.

 

Invitations were extended to music creators, pre-qualified by the Recording Academy, based on recommendations from the Academy’s Task Force On Diversity & Inclusion. Those who accept their invitations to join by 11/15 will have the opportunity to participate in the final round of voting for the 61st annual Grammy Awards.

Hopefully meaning we'll have better nominees & winners than last year :clap3:

ST & Lemonade snubs are really forcing them (The Grammys) to make much needed changes. We’ll see how these “changes” play out.

As if most of them won’t just forget to vote like a lot of members do every year. That’s if they even bother to complete their registration as this stuff has been open to anyone who fulfils the criteria for a really long time now.

I'm glad that Grammy now is not about those white guys in their 50s judging on which song is good.

Lemonade? Yes, it was a snub. ST? Nope.
