ADEI Learning Lab
Chorus America is excited to introduce the ADEI Learning Lab, a four-week experiential online learning program teaching foundational knowledge in access, diversity, equity, and inclusion (ADEI). The Learning Lab is specifically designed for white choral leaders seeking to address structural racism in their organizations and become better allies and accomplices to their BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and people of color) colleagues. In this small cohort-style program, you'll engage with the material in small groups during interactive live sessions with faculty and fellow participants, as well as through assignments and readings between sessions.
In the ADEI Learning Lab, participants will:
- Address fundamental concepts of access, diversity, equity, and inclusion (ADEI)
- Learn about their own identities and the ways these identities position them within society and within the choral field
- Learn how concepts of ADEI can be used to create change within their organizations
- Connect with other Chorus America members interested in continuing ADEI work and build a resource network
Registration for the ADEI Learning Lab's 2021 Spring cohort is now full. If you would like to be contacted the next time this program is offered, please fill out this Interest Form (we will also contact you in the unlikely event that a space in this cohort becomes available).
Chorus America gratefully acknowledges the NAMM Foundation’s Music and Social Justice program, the Cincinnati May Festival, Justice Choir, and the Popplestone CA Fund at the Boston Foundation for their generous support of the inaugural ADEI Learning Lab.
