The event will honor the Black Entertainment and Sports Lawyers Association — a nationally recognized leader in legal education and professional development within the United States for lawyers and professionals in the entertainment, sports and related industries — with the 2021 Entertainment Law Initiative Service Award. This honor is awarded to an attorney or organization that has demonstrated a commitment to advancing and supporting the music community through service. Sophia Sofferman, the winner of this year's Entertainment Law Initiative Writing Competition along with runners up Evan Biegel and Alberto Vargas will also be recognized during the virtual event. Other program participants include Recording Academy® Chair and Interim President/CEO Harvey Mason jr., Entertainment Law Initiative Executive Committee Chair Laurie Soriano, Entertainment Law Initiative Executive Committee member Ken Abdo, and Recording Academy Chief Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Officer Valeisha Butterfield Jones, who will lead a roundtable discussion that will explore the current state of diversity in the music industry.
