You know this week’s WorkParty guest as the co-lead singer of the pop-alt band Fitz and The Tantrums. She’s lent her voice to top-charting songs like “Out of My League,” “HandClap,” and “The Walker.”

But now, she’s using her voice in a whole new way. 

As the founder of the diversity initiative Diversify the Stage Noelle Scaggs is on a mission to make career opportunities in music more accessible to BIPOC, LGBTQIA+, female-identifying, gender-nonconforming individuals, and disabled persons, across all stages.

And it couldn’t have come at a more crucial moment. According to recent research, just 21% of popular artists are women, 12% are songwriters, and only 2% are producers. And the stats are even bleaker for women of color.

It’s clear the music industry needs to change—and Noelle is leading the way.

In this episode of WorkParty, Jaclyn Johnson dives into the incredible career of this successful multi-hyphenate and learns more about how she’s transforming the music industry through her Diversify the Stage initiative.
