Equity & Inclusion
Through this educational training program, Art Access' curriculum focuses on teaching partner organizations how to identify and address the lack of services for individuals with disabilities and providing other arts and cultural organizations with the tools, knowledge, and awareness to solicit community-wide action.
Grantcraft - Racial Equity Lens
Grantcraft's resource for learning, applying, and implementing a racial equity lens to your organization.
Grantmakers in the Arts (GIA) is committed to addressing structural inequities and increasing philanthropic and government support for African, Latinx, Asian, Arab, and Native American (ALAANA) artists and arts organizations. Racial equity is a lens through which GIA aims to conduct all of its work, as well as a specific area of its programming.
Utah's humanities and arts sector has work to do to become a more equitable and inclusive community. At Utah Cultural Alliance, it is our goal to help our members have the necessary resources to work to become more diverse, equitable, and inclusive. Please feel free to utilize our tools to improve your DEI efforts, including a sample DEI statement, a best practices guide, trainings, studies, research, and more!
