ADEI Learning Lab
After holding an inaugural program in May that quickly sold out, Chorus America is excited to announce our second 2021 cohort of the ADEI Learning Lab, a four-week experiential online learning program teaching foundational knowledge in access, diversity, equity, and inclusion (ADEI) while addressing Whiteness and White supremacy. 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), along with Whiteness and White supremacy
- 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
