“Not only has Caron worked at some of the biggest record labels and managed one of the world’s most successful artists, I greatly admire her commitment to advocacy work and desire to change the industry for the better.”
Additionally, she co-founded the Black Music Action Coalition (BMAC), an influential advocacy group committed to combating racism in the music business and promoting parity for Black artists, executives, and professionals across all sectors of the industry.
In addition to sitting on DICE’s board, Veazey also serves on the Advisory Board of NYU’s Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music, and serves as the Chair of the SPLICE Global Music Council.
At DICE, Veazey will collaborate closely with the artist development, content, and leadership teams. She will also leverage her extensive leadership experience in diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) spaces to mentor DICE’s DEI team.
