As part of our commitment to equality in all forms, English Folk Expo will document our progress against our broader Equality, Diversity and Inclusivity Policy Statement.
This is our first full year of being able to create a report such as this and we hope that this will give us a clear benchmark for leadership in the sector as we strive for the folk, roots and acoustic music industry to be fully representative of the wider population.
Whilst we are sector exemplars in terms of gender equality and diversity of sexual orientation, there is more work to be done in our representation of disability and ethnicity.
We encourage everyone we work with to provide us with this data, but not all do. To this end, the contents of this report can only reflect the datasets from those who complete our forms.
