EdTA intensified its efforts to improve racial equity throughout the organization – and theatre education at large.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

EdTA views diversity, equity, and inclusion as integral to its core value “people matter,” and 2021 was a year of intentional effort toward addressing racial equity, which is the biggest gap for both the theatre education community and the association. Here’s a look at our most important progress in 2021:
Student performers dancing in Fela! at ITF 2022
