Workgroup on Diversity & Inclusion

This workgroup is designed for staff, board members, and musicians interested in promoting diversity and inclusion at their orchestras.

Meeting via phone, the group will work to create a “safe place” for discussing diversity strategies and best practices within varied contexts specific to orchestras.

Participants will be encouraged to use the workgroup conversation to jump-start their personal efforts to move diversity and inclusion work forward within their organization.

Moderated by Jim Hirsch, executive director, Chicago Sinfonietta
