Cultural Competency and Equity Coalition (C²EC) is a membership-based organization that supports the embodiment of Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, Anti-Racism and Cultural Competence (I.DE.A.&CC) and works to transform the cultural norms within the classical arts. C²EC is a learning community providing the support, education, and advocacy organizations, leaders, artists, and creators need to reimagine and reshape the culture and the standards of classical arts.
The C²EC and its members will work collaboratively to become anti-racist, and embed the foundational tenets of I.DE.A.&CC into their organizations and the field at large. Most importantly, C²EC will provide a measure of accountability that has been missing by encouraging members to exercise transparency not only within the Coalition, but with its employees, stakeholders, patrons and the public.
C²EC is the entity that will call our members “in” before they get called out. We will actively foster the practice of “community responsibility” by encouraging leaders to hold themselves accountable for the evolution they want in the field.
C²EC has designed a Curriculum of Change that will address the needs of the field, from pipeline to performance, boardroom to box office and beyond. Our team of consultants, facilitators, and educators—experts in various subject matters, ( I.D.EA. organizational culture, history etc.) will engage members as a cohort, and individually to influence organizational cultural reform.
C²EC is founded on a collaborative model, and the voices of our members shape and mold the work, support and services we offer. We are committed to modeling effective communication, collaborative problem solving, and transparency. Redesigning a culture is like remodeling a house—once you open up the walls you never know what you might find. Therefore the C²EC is an entity that is malleable and able to adjust in order to address emerging needs of members and the field as they arise, while remaining true to the original intent and mission of the coalition.
