- Association of Performing Arts Presenters (APAP): In order to move beyond historical organizational models infused with cultural superiority/inferiority assumptions, 21st-century performing arts presenting professionals must respond adaptively. How can we examine the needs of those in cultural leadership roles and support their adaptive efforts?
- Network of Ensemble Theaters (NET): How do we let go of old definitions and discover new models in order to share learning with our sister organizations and the field at large?
- National Association of Latino Arts and Cultures (NALAC): How do we ensure that our programs and services change and develop alongside the rapidly diversifying Latino community?
- Urban Bush Women: How can we catalyze a paradigmatic shift in how the dance field identifies and nurtures female choreographers of color?
