Naming and centering organizational values of equity, diversity and inclusion (EDI) is more important than ever in the current crisis. This session offers an overview of the San Francisco Symphony’s efforts over almost two years to build a more inclusive and equitable organizational culture. How was a foundational understanding of EDI built through difficult, ongoing work at the San Francisco Symphony prior to the onset of COVID-19, and how can the organization’s EDI learnings and values manifest in its response to the current crisis?
