Consultants can be extremely helpful in assisting the orchestra in clarifying, mapping, and measuring equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) goals. These experts can offer a great perspective on how your orchestra is progressing compared to peers or the nonprofit industry as a whole; offer advice that can help you avoid common pitfalls when doing EDI work; assist in mediating conflict such as differences of opinion on approach and strategy; and highlight and center typically marginalized voices and views, ensuring a range of perspectives is heard by key leaders and decision makers.

We hope this guide will provide you with information and inspiration as you continue on your journey to find a consultant who is flexible and responsive to your needs as you grow your EDI learning and practice.
