Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Accessibility (DEIA) Statement
The Cincinnati Arts Association (CAA) is committed to actively living our mission through the lenses of Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Accessibility. Understanding that "race" is a construct of our society, we dedicate ourselves to examining our behaviors and mindsets, practices, programs, and processes to move our organization towards an anti-racist equity culture.
CAA is intentional in developing an environment in all spaces and programs where employees, artists, volunteers, and audiences, regardless of gender, race, ethnicity, national origin, age, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, education, body type, or disability feel valued, respected, and safe. We choose to embrace and nurture diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility so that all persons may thrive and creative potential is maximized.
Acknowledging the differences in each human experience, CAA’s core values ensure a commitment to a fair and just system, and an approach in which all voices are valued and heard. CAA provides equal opportunity for employment and advancement in all departments, programs, and worksites. We pledge to model diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility as individuals and as a team for our community and beyond by maintaining an inclusive environment with equitable treatment for all.
