The Catalyst Fund Incubator is a program of the League of American Orchestras designed to build the capacity of 20 member orchestras to nurture and sustain a culture that empowers a feeling of inclusivity among stakeholders, which will enable the orchestra to welcome the diversity it seeks.

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 your journey to find a consultant who is flexible and responsive to your needs as you grow your EDI learning and practice.
