WASHINGTON, D.C. — October 4, 2023 — SoundExchange, the premier music tech organization powering the future of music, announced today it has been honored with the prestigious 2023 Top Workplaces for Nonprofit award. Selection is based solely on employee feedback gathered through an anonymous third-party survey administered by Energage, LLC.
