Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

The Chamber Music Conference is deeply saddened by the recurring examples of racial injustice and discrimination throughout the United States, and how they have highlighted the inequities in our society. We believe Black lives matter. We are inspired by those taking a stand against forces that would perpetuate systemic racism and white supremacy.

We are taking this opportunity to examine our own organization and programs and have formed a working group, which includes representatives of Conference participants, faculty, staff, and Board, to examine diversity, equity, and inclusion at the Conference. The working group invited input from the Conference community and, based on the observations and experiences of all who responded, identified issues related to culture, diversity, inclusivity, and racism at the Conference. The working group has collected hundreds of suggestions for ways to address these issues and is currently reviewing those suggestions and distilling them into recommendations that it will present to the Board.

We are committed to making changes that will foster a more inclusive culture and a more diverse community at the Conference.
