Owning Your Company's History and Navigating Change


Owning Your Company's History and Navigating Change

Beatport x AFEM - Robb McDaniels (CEO, The Beatport Group), Silvia Montello (CEO, AFEM)

What are the lessons to be learned from the need to deal with present-day social discussions that have arisen from behaviour that took place in the distant past? What is the internal impact of the social backlash and how do you deal with that constructively and positively while protecting current employees and partners? What changes have been implemented at Beatport since the alleged incidents and what is the ideal outcome of owning your company history and leaning into the very real challenges our entire community faces?

Following a well-documented series of allegations, AFEM recently stated its intention to work with Beatport towards ensuring an equitable, safe and positive working culture for all, while also outlining tangible, measurable structures for change, with the hope that this would set a new set of standards for the global DJ industry. A conversation between Silvia Montello (CEO, AFEM) and Robb McDaniels (CEO, Beatport).
