Dorothy Carvello, the first woman to become an A&R executive for Atlantic Records, has launched Face The Music Now. The foundation is aimed at helping survivors of sexual misconduct in the music industry.
Face The Music Now is committed to educating aspiring music industry leaders to create a safer, more equal work environment for everyone in the music industry.
“As a survivor myself, I have seen and experienced firsthand how sexual harassment and abuse shatters survivors psychologically, financially and professionally,” Carvello says (via Cision). “It’s not a matter of money; it’s about helping them put the pieces back together. This is about the decades-old and widespread abuse of power in the music industry. We want to help survivors find their voices and take back some of what they have lost.”
Members of Face The Music Now’s board of directors include Beverly Keel (dean of Middle Tennessee State University’s College of Media and Entertainment), Bruce Roberts (writer and solo performer) and Rob Savage (former U.S. Secret Service special agent).
