Developing an Effective Diversity Statement

Like a mission or vision statement, a diversity statement (or “diversity, equity, and inclusion [DEI] statement”) can serve as a guiding principle for you, your brand, and/or your business. It can also serve to communicate your commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion to potential clients, customers, collaborators, students, or employers. In this webinar, you will learn best practices in constructing a diversity statement for a website, application, or submission packet.

In this workshop, you will:
Learn key elements of, and considerations for, your diversity statement.
Study examples of diversity statements from a variety of artistic disciplines and for a variety of purposes.
– Receive prompts, writing exercises, and outlines to help you brainstorm and draft your statement.
