Victims of sexual harassment within society and specifically within the entertainment industry need trained support. AFEM is launching a confidential support service, delivered by Health Assured, to provide advice and guidance to those affected.
The Association for Electronic Music is the global trade body for the genre representing the interests of record labels, managers, promoters, publishers, clubs and all other companies whose business is electronic music. Members include Live Nation, CAA, Three Six Zero, Red Light Management and Defected.
The organisation and its members are determined to drive positive change in the industry and to ensure openness, inclusion and diversity in all aspects of electronic music. A code of conduct will be launched early in 2018 to allow AFEM members to reach the highest standards of behaviour within their organisations.
Mark Lawrence AFEM CEO: “Since its formation, AFEM has championed equality and inclusion as vital foundations of our industry and we unequivocally condemn sexual abuse and harassment of any kind. To step forward as a victim of abuse or harassment takes immense courage and we will support all who need help and guidance.
We are working with our 150 plus members on how to unite as an industry against all forms of abuse and AFEM directs anyone who has been affected by abuse or harassment to an industry specific and confidential service operated by Health Assured on 0800 030 5182, (Outside the UK: +44 800 030 5182) where trained experts will listen and support.
