Using the Arts to Support DEI Work in the Private Sector

Friday, June 15, 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm

Even as the arts sector continues to move toward greater diversity, equity, and inclusion, it is important to recognize the great opportunity offered to other sectors--including business--of arts and culture as a method of training employees to be more equitable. In this workshop, learn more about encouraging arts-business partnerships to train private sector employees on core DEI skills.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Explore example projects where arts and culture has been used to train private sector employees on DEI issues.
  2. Map a private sector/DEI partnership plan for your own community and work to position yourself for success.
  3. Learn the important terminology and vocabulary necessary to engage private businesses as clients for arts-based DEI work.
