The public sector has a critical role to play in advancing diversity, equity and inclusion in and through the arts.  NASAA provides leadership, resources and training that empower state arts agencies to reduce barriers and bias, making the arts central to the well-being and prosperity of all communities across America.

"Advancing diversity, equity and inclusion requires a DNA change... This work cuts across all aspects of an organization and it requires personal and organizational commitments." Go to NASAA CEO's article on NASAA commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion.
