This free Catalyst Guide from the League of American Orchestras highlights concrete actions that orchestras can take to support their equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) goals. Register to download the PDF and learn how to advance your orchestra on its own EDI journey.

The actions chronicled in the Catalyst Guide characterize the work of orchestra grantees of The Catalyst Fund Incubator, a League program that empowers member orchestras to create a culture of inclusivity and, ultimately, to nurture and sustain the diversity they seek. Orchestras supported by The Catalyst Fund are laboratories for showing us what works in building understanding and creating effective EDI practices.

The Catalyst Fund Incubator and Catalyst Guide are made possible by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation with additional support from the Paul M. Angell Family Foundation.

Additional support for the Guide is provided by the National Endowment for the Arts and by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.
