Equity and Inclusion takes mindful, deliberate, consistent action

Equity and Inclusion training has risen to the rank of the latest and most nouveau. As those who are mindful embrace social justice as a way forward, organizations within the arts sector are speaking up to prove that they want to be just and that they care about a balanced work force. Art, artists, and art forms have historically activated dialogue and fueled action in ways that are all at once courageous, risk-taking, unbiased, informed, pivotal, and so much more. Awareness, dialogue, and consideration are a starting point.

The Urban Arts Leadership is GBCA’s major effort surrounding equitable dialogue, as well as action surrounding inclusion. Applications are now open for the UALP Cohort 2019.
