Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Audit

In the fall of 2020, Fringe will begin an Equity, Diversity and Inclusion audit with Sedina Fiati (Principal at BIPOC Executive Search and founder of Where You Are Consulting) and Candice Frederick (Principal at BIPOC Executive Search).

The Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Audit for the Toronto Fringe will culminate in a series of recommendations which will be incorporated into the operating plan for the Fringe. The audit and action items will ensure the Fringe is better equipped to address issues of racism and oppression. As Fringe's current strategic plan (2019-2021) is about to expire, it is an ideal moment to infuse EDI principles into all aspects of the Fringe’s operations.

Once the audit is underway, we will be posting our findings and action items on this page.

 

For now, here are some of our statements from the spring:

 

June 1, 2020: Our statement in solidarity with organizations fighting anti-black racism.
June 5, 2020: A letter from our Executive Director on addressing systemic barriers at Fringe.
June 8, 2020: An anti-racist reading list from Fringe's former Outreach Coordinator Senjuti Sarker
