NEW YORK (AP) — Andra Day and Common are among the artists and executives on the Recording Academy’s new task force on inclusion and diversity.

The academy announced the team’s 16

members — 13 of whom are women — in a statement Wednesday.

The Grammys announced the initiative after its CEO drew criticism for saying women need to “step up” when asked about the lack of female winners backstage at its 60th awards show in January.

Other members include artists Cam, Cheryl Crow, and BET chief executive Debra Lee.

The task force chair is Tina Tchen, former chief of staff to Michelle Obama, who has spent the last two months assembling the team.

The academy says it’s intended to uncover unconscious biases and other barriers that impede women’s success in the music industry.
