Part I - UNDERSTANDING THE WHYS: Learn how a proactive diversity program can help you attract and retain talented members with widespread backgrounds, life experiences and perspectives; and how that helps your chapter (and the organization overall) achieve our ultimate goals: communication, artistry, growth, and learning. Understand more about how prospective members prefer musical opportunities that actively seek variety and promote cultural awareness. Hear why it is beneficial to cultivate an environment with more opportunities for innovative thinking and a broader range of ideas; not only for growing your chapter, but for growing yourself!
Part II - GETTING STARTED WITH THE DE&I TOOLKIT: Get a better understanding about how to use the Toolkit to examine your current culture and take steps towards our organization-wide culture of belonging. Obtain tips for where to start, sharing the information with members and incorporating diversity, equity and inclusion strategies within your chorus.
