artEquity offers training and consulting services to individuals and organizations on creating and sustaining a culture of equity and inclusion through the arts and culture. Training topics address structural and systemic issues of identity, power-sharing language and communication, team building, and strategies to initiate and normalize equity-based approaches in organizational and community culture.

The arts community is undergoing a dynamic shift with growing opportunities for leadership in community impact. However, without a strategic coordination of efforts, resources, and capacity building, many opportunities will be lost or short-lived. artEquity trainings create diverse, well-equipped cadres of engaged arts practitioners who sustain and expand equity-based initiatives nationwide.
