About Sam.

Samantha Stimpson (she/her) is a multi-award winning consultant and the founder and managing director of SLS 360 who works to support, challenge and empower individuals and organisations, to be bold and brave in their work to eliminate injustice and discrimination and affect positive change 

 

Her work spans a broad range of sectors especially arts and music organisations, cultural hubs and schools, to understand how they can develop strategies to attract and retain a diverse, equitable and inclusive workforce, embed diversity and inclusion in their work and foster an environment free from discrimination where all voices are heard, respected and celebrated. 

 

A trustee for Music for Youth, Samantha is also a Violin & Viola player with a mission to ensure greater representation of musicians across all genres but especially classical music, so children and young people of colour don’t experience being ‘othered’ as the only one or one of few. 

 

Samantha is a passionate advocate of EDI and following the publication of her report on Diversity and Representation in London Music Education Hubs, has worked as a consultant with Music Mark, Arts Council England and Sound Connections to support the Music Education sector ensuring EDI is embedded in the work their members do.
