Limited Capacity seats available

Improving racial equity in the arts is an urgent and important issue in the field. Opera companies that embrace diversity can harness the strengths of various backgrounds and bolster connections with their local communities. Carmen Morgan, founder and director of artEquity, leads this in-depth seminar for an intimate group of opera practitioners that marks an initial step for coordinated action in the field.

  • Understand your personal approach to difference and identity.
  • Unpack commonly used language to have more productive and actionable discussions about racial equity.
  • Learn how to develop an equity, diversity and inclusion (EDI) initiative for your organization. 

Following the conference, participants who have an interest in personal leadership development and a passion for organizational change will be called upon to help inform OPERA America’s approach to EDI initiatives over the next year.
