Values of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

As a member of Dance/USA, the national service organization for professional dance, The Joffrey Ballet has adopted Dance/USA's statement on core values of equity and inclusion

 

Dance as an art form provides expression, celebration, exploration, and transformation for all people. The inclusion and equitable treatment of all members of the community are core values of the Joffrey and central to its mission. In achieving core values of equity and inclusion, the Joffrey is committed to diversity in every aspect of its programming and services. Diversity in this context refers to groups, communities, and individuals identified by dance genre or form, race, ethnicity, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, religion, age, or disability status. Inclusion means a commitment to making all members of the community feel welcome and comfortable at the Joffrey. Equity is ensuring justice, impartiality, and fairness in procedures, processes, and opportunities. 

 

The Joffrey Ballet is committed to honoring, nurturing, and advancing dance through the lens of diversity, inclusion, and equity in all aspects of its programming, services, and organization.
