Inspiring all DJs through Education, Networking and Support

Our Role in Creating Social Change: An Open Forum

  • October 20, 2020
  • 9:00 PM - 10:30 PM
  • Zoom Link In Description


To say that 2020 has been filled with challenges and time for self reflection would be an understatement. A variety of social issues have become more well known, in sharper focus and of more discussion than our generation has ever known. The social change our world currently requires is a topic that companies, organizations and people can no longer sit on the sidelines for.

At the encouragement from you, through the observations of the association leadership team and because of music's unique relationship to people from a very broad set of backgrounds, the time has come (and may be long overdue) for us to host a conversation around the topic of social change. What can we do as a DJ community?

We know this brings a wide variety of feelings to the surface, and that is why we have created this special online event.

Hosted by CPDJA member Chris Briscoe and Executive Committee member Debbie Russell, Our Role in Creating Social Change: An Open Forum seeks to create a safe space for all of us to learn from one another. Together, we will learn from the lived experience and perspectives of one another in an inclusive environment for all.

To a great extent, our livelihoods as DJs have been built on the struggles of marginalized members of our society. We will learn about the incredible connections our industry has to the topic of diversity in peoples and why this is such an important matter for each of us to understand and the part we play in it.

Please, join us on the evening of Tuesday, October 20, 2020 as we grow, learn and become better for one another and for our communities.
