Equity, Diversity & Inclusion
Cultural Diversity Action Plan
Dallas Black Dance Theatre has adopted a core value system that embraces all cultures to strengthen the organization by working together for a common purpose that delivers transformative experiences for all.
With no exclusions, Dallas Black Dance Theatre offers services to the entire population, regardless of race, age, or circumstance. Since its founding, DBDT’s innovative approach to equity, diversity, and inclusion has been based on a dedicated commitment to lead by example and actively implement change rather than only conceptualize results. Established by its Board of Directors, this initiative is fulfilled through the organization’s mission to bridge cultures, reach diverse communities, and encompass ever-expanding global audiences.
