The Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra's (CSO) Multicultural Awareness Council (MAC) announced Kick Lee as the recipient of the 2021-22 MAC Award for Diversity and Leadership in the Arts, an annual award which recognizes local Cincinnati artists, administrators, and visionaries who have forged paths for the inclusion of underrepresented communities in the arts.

Devoted to the advancement of music creatives in the Cincinnati region, Lee founded the Cincinnati Music Accelerator (CMA), Ohio's first music career accelerator organization, which focuses on connecting people, building diverse relationships, and providing creatives with opportunities to learn, create, and propel their careers.

Since CMA's inception, hundreds of musical entrepreneurs have been supported in the Cincinnati region through programs such as The Street Stage Project (SSP), in partnership with Cincinnati Center City Development Corp. (3CDC), the CMA Mobile Stage trailer, the Music Business Academy, and the CMA Music Studio. Lee also founded KL Studios Inc., a recording studio specializing in audio recording, audio production, post-production and music licensing for television, film, trailers, and commercials.
