Equity, Diversity and Inclusion

 

COMMITMENT TO DIVERSITY, EQUITY AND INCLUSION

Napa Valley Youth Symphony is committed to creating an organization that values diversity, equity and inclusion and offers unlimited full tuition and lesson scholarships. Cost should never be a barrier to participation.

 

 

Our Equity, Diversity and Inclusion committee is 15 people strong representing parents, staff, and musicians, as well as diverse in age, race, ethnicity, and gender. In our second meeting we talked about importance of making NVYS a musical home where everyone feels a sense of belonging.

We began our work with Scansion Consulting who engaged a small group of staff, musicians and board members in a EDI feedback session. We just completed our organizational survey asking for insight into how NVYS approaches Equity, Diversity and Inclusion.

Thank you to the League of American Orchestra's for our 3-year Catalyst Grant which support our EDI work. More to come!
