August 29, 2021—If you’re responsible for marketing arts organization, or if Equity, Diversity and Inclusion is your concern, I believe this podcast curated by Erik Gensler, founder of Capacity Interactive, is important for you to hear.
It features two separate discussions: First, with Theresa Ruth Howard, a former ballet dancer and journalist, who is the founder and curator of Memoirs of Blacks in Ballet. She also is a diversity strategist and consultant. Erik also speaks with Mariclare Hulbert, who is the founder of Mariclare Hulbert Consulting, a marketing and communications firm specializing in arts and nonprofit organizations.
They discuss multi-layered marketing challenges, including how to thoughtfully respond to social media criticism and how to communicate equity-related issues. They also investigate various power dynamics between marketers and organizational leaders, artists and organizations, and the general public and organizations. Then both women join Erik for a question and answer session.
