    Association for Electronic Music Launches Sexual Harassment Support Resource


    Ozclubbers.com.au

    As pressure grows stronger for industries, companies, and people alike to address and acknowledge sexual harassment, so does the good that is being done by multiple people, specifically in the entertainment industry. The Association for Electronic Music (AFEM) has realized the dire need for assistance in this field and has decided to launch a confidential sexual harassment support service. AFEM represents a unified voice for multiple labels, managers, and venues to have a platform which identifies and solve certain problems with the entire industry.

    This program employs more than 150 members who are determined to unify the electronic music industry in the effort to fight against sexual harassment and all other forms of abuse through a hotline that is completely confidential. The association has also stated that it will be creating a new code of conduct this year to allow their organization to achieve excellent standards of behavior on every front.

    “This is a pivotal moment for society, industry and inclusivity and we must ensure that every opportunity is taken to support all victims. It is time to build a safe and supportive environment for everyone whatever their gender, ethnicity, sexual preference and age.” said AFEM CEO, Mark Lawrence.

    Anyone who has been affected in the industry by sexual harassment can call 0800 030 5182 if you are in the United Kingdom or +44 800 030 5182 if you are in another country. For more information on the Association for Electronic Music and this initiative, visit their website here.
