From Giving Compass:
Advancing Gender Equity in the Arts
This article from Giving Compass summarizes a recent Americans for the Arts blog post written by DDP Communications Lead Isabelle Ramey and DDP Founder and President Elizabeth Yntema. This article uses findings from the National Endowment for the Arts and from DDP’s Connecting the Dots Data Bytes to report on gender equity in arts leadership. Especially following the pandemic, women in the arts face several unique challenges and barriers. The article notes the immediate need for standards and support systems that will aid in advancing women in the workforce. It also explains that our upcoming Gender Equity Index, along with further research, will provide key data explaining why women leave the workforce and how their success in the dance industry can be supported and sustained.
