The Diversity and Inclusion Task Force of Sweet Adelines International has developed a dynamic toolkit for choruses worldwide. These resources are designed to deepen our culture of inclusion and increase awareness, openness and understanding among members and leaders. As a global organization, we are committed to addressing and condemning racism, discrimination and other forms of inequity not only with words, but with meaningful actions.
"Sweet Adelines believes in a culture of belonging and is actively committed to diversity and inclusion at all levels of our organization. Our International Board of Directors established the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Council to ensure ongoing stewardship, transparency, and accountability in this critical area."
JOAN BOUTILIER, PRESIDENT
International Board of Directors | Sweet Adelines International
"The foundation of all that we do in the San Diego Chorus requires our organization to create and hold 'safe space' for every member. This cannot occur without an ongoing culture of inclusion and a commitment to diversity. A welcoming environment requires every member to place a high value on common ground and new learnings."
KATHLEEN HANSEN, MASTER DIRECTOR
San Diego Chorus of Sweet Adelines International
The San Diego Chorus established a member-led task force focused on improving and deepening belonging, diversity and inclusion in all facets of our chorus. In addition to contributing to ongoing organizational dialogue at a regional and international level, this team develops and shares educational resources with our chorus members. These key leaders are intentional, engaged and accessible to all of our members. Feedback, questions and suggestions are encouraged.

The San Diego Chorus welcomes individuals with disabilities, and our rehearsal and performance locations are ADA compliant. Our organization embraces empowerment for all at the local, regional and international level. As such, accessibility factors inform our decision-making processes.
