With the announcement, all three major labels now have an executive role dedicated to promoting diversity and inclusion.
Sony Music Group has hired Tiffany R. Warren, an advertising executive who has worked to promote diversity across media industries for more than two decades, as its first-ever executive vp, chief diversity and inclusion officer.
Warren moves over from more than 10 years as Omnicom Group's global chief diversity officer. In her new role, she will expand equity and inclusion activities and policies across all of Sony Music Group's (SMG) global recorded music, publishing and corporate divisions, reporting directly to SMG chairman Rob Stringer. She'll work in tandem with SMG's human resources department as well as its social justice task forces and philanthropy efforts in areas like creating equitable hiring and promotion practices, diversifying business partnerships and setting up regular, company-wide diversity and equity reports.
"I am delighted to have Tiffany join our leadership team," Stringer said. "Her ground-breaking strategic vision, expertise and entrepreneurism will help us further our commitment to equity and long-term change inside our company and throughout the industry."
