    Measuring & Taking a Stand for Sonic Diversity

    Speakers: Nils d'Aulaire, Creative Director, Studio Resonate, SXM Media

    Lines have been drawn that perpetuate racism in every industry. Some of these lines can be seen, others can be heard. Those are sonic color lines: invisible but pervasive barriers that reward white voices and marginalize voices of color. They impact our marketing and messaging decisions, and crossing them requires us to retrain the way we listen, to diversify the sonic spaces we inhabit, and to change the creative choices we're making that serve to perpetuate systemically racist sonic structures. Auditing the status quo and plotting a path of improvement and optimization starts with measurement. In this thought-provoking presentation, we dig into our groundbreaking research, examining the history and impacts of racialized listening, and offering suggestions for how brands and advertising agencies can take a stand for sonic diversity. It's in the data: from favorability to effectiveness, sonic diversity is both an ethical imperative and a sound business practice.
