Catalyst Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Resource Center

The League of American Orchestras Catalyst Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Resource Center is designed to provide practical and helpful insights, advice, and a path to greater diversity and inclusion in every part of your organization. You’ll find important readings, research, and a number of examples of leadership within and beyond our field. The League intends this space to be a useful repository of curated resources that will help us change existing discriminatory systems, allowing musicians, administrators, volunteers, and board members—regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, ability, religion or any other dimension of diversity–to thrive in the orchestra field. And we again affirm our own desire to learn, to evolve, and to act alongside our members in this important work.

Toward that end, please read this important statement expressing how the League of American Orchestras is coming to grips with its history of racism, reflecting on the impact of racism within the League and the wider community of orchestras, and committing to sustained action.
