Music Industry Advisory Board - VH1 Save The Music Foundation

Music Industry Advisory Board


The mission of the advisory board is to ensure we can close the gap for the next generation of music industry professionals to create a more inclusive and diverse future. Led by three Music & Talent executives from Save The Music’s longtime partner ViacomCBS, the Music Industry Advisory Board aims to ensure that students at Save The Music’s grantee schools have access to a diverse set of successful music professionals, so they are aware that there is more to the industry beyond being on the main stage. This new board is being spearheaded by three female senior executives out of ViacomCBS – Elena Diaz, Senior Vice President of Talent & Content Development ViacomCBS Entertainment & Youth Group, Leslie Fram, SVP Music and Talent CMT, and Wanda Coriano, Senior Director of Music at MTV.
