PiPA Classical Music Survey: Work Life Balance, Diversity and Caring Responsibilities

This new survey will help PiPA identify patterns in job and working environments in relation to work-life balance and develop practical strategies and resources for Classical Music organisations to better support parents and carers, and the wider workforce.

This survey, funded by Help Musicians UK and Musicians Union, and developed in partnership with Association of British Orchestras, Liverpool Philharmonic, SWAP’ra, Black Lives in Music and UK Music, will investigate the impact of caring responsibilities on career progression as well as wider worklife balance and wellbeing challenges in Classical Music.

The survey will provide data driven insights to enable PiPA to develop a range of strategies and resources for the Classical Music sector to empower organisations to better support parents, carers and the wider workforce.

PiPA wants to hear from people from all backgrounds and circumstances, with and without caring responsibilities, to ensure that any future work is any subsequent strategies are inclusive and accessible and for the benefit of for all.
