INCLUSION, DIVERSITY, EQUITY, & ACCESS

CELEBRATING MANY FORMS OF DIVERSITY

Our Mission

San Francisco Ballet’s Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DE&I) mission is to: provide individuals an opportunity to achieve their full potential; enhance and strengthen our art form; and solidify our reputation as a preeminent arts organization, embodying innovation, excellence, and inclusion. We strive to share our joy of dance, while fostering a welcoming environment—both internally and externally—that celebrates and embraces many forms of diversity.

SF BOARD I.D.E.A. STATEMENT

The San Francisco Ballet Board of Trustees is committed to actively promoting inclusion, diversity, equity, and access throughout the San Francisco Ballet organization, to ensure that we are truly welcoming to all.

Our Board invites and promotes the inclusion of different perspectives, which in turn improves oversight and demonstrates our determination to foster a culture free of conscious and unconscious bias, from the boardroom to the stage. In service of this commitment, we embrace and respect those of varying socio-economic, cultural, and racial backgrounds, all of whom bring value and vibrancy to the workplace and to our company.

We believe that dance has the capacity to inspire people of all backgrounds and bring joy to their lives. The future of ballet depends on its ability to be inclusive, and to attract new and more diverse audiences.
We pledge to amplify the voices that reflect the diversity of our local and global communities, and to make sustainable change the legacy of our leadership.
