Over a period of five years, our program developed a significant effort towards promoting equity and inclusion in arts management education writ small (within the program) and arts management practice writ large (in the field). Our measures included significant changes to admissions and internship requirements, faculty hiring, classroom practice, curriculum design, fellowship development, faculty training, and support structures in the classroom, campus and employment. The work required re-education of campus administrators and prospective employers, confrontation of our own biases and weaknesses, and a reformulation of the relationship with our students. In this paper I describe our efforts, what we learned, what we are wrestling with, what we got right, and what we got wrong. The paper includes recommendations for other programs interested in taking an equitable and inclusive approach to arts management education and practice.
