OHIO ARTS PROFESSIONALS NETWORK ORGANIZATIONAL PLEDGE:

As a leader committed to racial equity and gender justice, Ohio Arts Professionals Network (OAPN) pledges to:

• ​A 10-year commitment​ to empower, represent and engage the work of artists and organizations within our work and/or organization who identify as and whose primary focus is from Black, Native/Indigenous, People of Color, women, individuals with disabilities, and LGBTQIA2S+ persons. This includes a commitment to hire, develop, and provide opportunities for Black, Native/Indigenous, People of Color, women, individuals with disabilities, and LGBTQIA2S+ persons in leadership and staffing positions of our organization, incorporating local and regional demographics to inform these decisions.

• ​20% percent of our programming or artist rosters allocated exclusively towards the mission, performance, presentation, commissioning, and administration of the work by artists and organizations who identify as and whose primary focus is from Black, Native/Indigenous, People of Color, women, individuals with disabilities, and LGBTQIA2S+ persons.

• ​30% percent of our annual budget for programming---for the presentation, commissioning, creation, producing or educating about work; for leadership and personnel---for the salaries and professional development costs in training and hiring for leadership, management, artistic, production, and staff positions of our organization; and for vendors---to focus exclusively on those owned or led  by Black, Native/Indigenous, People of Color, women, individuals with disabilities, and LGBTQIA2S+ persons and include local and regional demographics to inform these decisions.

• We commit to providing current data in these areas to track the current state and progress of our efforts as part of a fieldwide benchmarking effort and to issue an annual report on status, reflection, and discovery based on the work of this Pledge.

***For the programming and budget commitments, those who fall into more than one category will count toward fulfilling percentages in both categories. For example, if you commission a woman who identifies as Black and part of the LGBTQIA2S+ community, she would count toward the percentages in both programming and budget.
