The Catalyst Fund Incubator Overview
Becoming a more equitable, diverse, and inclusive organization neither happens overnight, nor can be achieved by simply adding more people of color, women, or LGBTQIA+ people to the staff or board to increase representation. People must feel seen, heard, and meaningfully empowered within the organization to make change.
To assist orchestras in creating more equitable, diverse, and inclusive cultures, the League has designed the next phase of The Catalyst Fund to incorporate elements from technology incubator models, such as supporting the development of new ideas through mentorship and guidance, and connection to peer communities engaged in similar developmental processes.
Applications are due on
Friday, October 22, 2021.
Deadline extended until Tuesday, October 26!
