Equity Resources from Metris Arts Consulting
May 21, 2019
Metris Arts Consulting has assembled a collection of resources on equity that may be useful to arts and education institutions examining their own equity commitments and plans.
“Metris strives to deepen its commitment to equity through both our work products and internal company processes.
What do we mean by equity? We have adopted the definition advanced by Grantmakers in the Arts:
Equity is the fair treatment, access, opportunity, and advancement for all people, while at the same time striving to identify and eliminate barriers that have prevented the full participation of some groups. Improving equity involves increasing justice and fairness within the procedures and processes of institutions or systems, as well as in their distribution of resources. Tackling equity issues requires an understanding of the root causes of outcome disparities within our society (Grantmakers in the Arts, 2015).
