US orchestra appoints a Chief Diversity Officermain
As part of the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra’s (CSO) 10-point Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Action Plan,a job has been created for an executive to implement the policy.
‘The creation of an executive-level Chief Diversity Officer places the Cincinnati Symphony at the leading edge of change in the orchestra field,’ said Jesse Rosen, President and CEO of the League of American Orchestras. ‘Our research confirms that one of the biggest barriers to progress is the lack of staff capacity. This move by the CSO models the level of commitment it takes to bring about equitable, diverse and inclusive organizations.’
