A Strategic Framework for EDI

At its January 2019 meeting, the League of American Orchestras’ board of directors adopted a strategic framework for the League’s work in advancing equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) in the orchestral field. “Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion: An Evolving Strategic Framework” outlines why EDI is important to the League, and why the League thinks it’s important for all orchestras. The document provides a definition of terms, as well the League’s vision, values, goals, and strategies related to EDI. While the framework was designed for use by the League, it may inform or inspire similar reflections, conversations, and statements by member orchestras, who may adapt as much of the framework as they wish.
