On Feb. 4, participate in a League webinar on advancing race equity

Posted on: January 29, 2020

Achieving race equity—the condition where one’s racial identity has no influence on how one fares in society—requires us to examine all the levels on which racism operates, recognize our role in enduring inequities, and commit to change. As a sector, it is critical that orchestras and arts organizations center race equity as a core goal of social impact in order to fulfill organizational missions.

Executive directors, youth orchestra directors, trustees, education and community engagement staff, and individuals seeking to learn more about shifting organizational culture toward race equity are invited to register for Building a Race Equity Culture in Classical Music Organizations, a 90-minute League of American Orchestras webinar on Tuesday, February 4 at 1:00 p.m. EST. Kerrien Suarez, an executive coach and executive director of Equity in the Center, will introduce a framework designed to support arts leaders as they build and expand their organizations’ capacity to advance race equity.
