Grammys launch inclusion task force to tackle diversity in music industry


Super Bowl performers Maroon 5 are among the latest artists to team up with the Grammys to try to end gender inequality in the music industry. More than 200 managers, labels and artists, including Alicia Keys, Lady Gaga, Tony Bennett and Katy Perry, are joining the new Producer and Engineer Inclusion Initiative. It will work to increase opportunities for women in these fields. The push for diversity will also include people of color and the LGBTQ community. Tina Tchen, chair of the Recording Academy Task Force on Diversity and Inclusion, spoke to “CBS This Morning” about the importance of diversity leading up to Sunday’s Grammys.
