Local arts agencies can function as community builders by addressing diversity, equity and inclusion. Research has shown that diversity, equity and inclusion policies and practices lead to greater success in local arts agencies. Local arts agencies across the country have been addressing diversity, equity and inclusion in various ways. For local arts agencies to make greater progress in diversity, equity and inclusion within their organization, they need to employ a position that focuses on its implementation. A position such as or related to a Chief Culture Officer can aid a local arts agency’s diversity, equity and inclusion efforts by integrating them into the organizational areas of human resources, programming and grantmaking. Research from interviews, reports and studies have shown that a position such as or related to a Chief Culture Officer can improve local arts agencies internal practices and external services to its constituent arts organizations. Employing a Chief Culture Officer is feasible for local arts agencies that have accessible personnel funding and diversity, equity and inclusion invested leadership.
