From the Ground Up: Building Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) in Your Program
The biggest challenges we have with managing diversity in our programs are often the ones we don’t see. Every time we hold a rehearsal, plan a performance, or bring in a guest clinician we are adding a new chapter to our program’s diversity story.
As leaders in our schools, we are responsible for championing a culture of belonging, empathy, and team building which is best realized in the framework of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. This course is all about how to recognize our diversity challenges, opportunities, roadblocks and how to fix them. In this course, we will expand on what you know about diversity and unpack how you can accelerate your diversity efforts.
To summarize, if you have the tools to expand diversity opportunities, build collaboration and support individual connectivity across boundaries, you are going to have a lot more success in creating an inclusive environment within your program(s).
