People of Color Affinity Group

Saturday, June 15, 9:00 am - 9:45 am

Returning for its second year, this affinity group is specifically for those identifying as people of color. Those not identifying as people of color are encouraged to attend either the "Allies Affinity Group" session or the panel discussion "What Are DEI-Related Affinity Groups, and Why Are They Useful?"

Learning Objectives:

  1. Meet and engage with other people of color working in the arts.
  2. Cultivate intergenerational understanding and learn strategies to activate a personal career support system.
  3. Share issues and concerns, as well as advice and mutual support, related to the unique challenges of being a person of color in the arts.
