NET’s Equity in Funding Statement

NET’s Equity in Funding Statement

As an organization that champions ensemble practice and collaborative creation, NET advocates for access, inclusion, and the empowered agency of multiple voices. NET’s commitment to equity and justice is rooted in a holistic vision of cultural pluralism that values diversity of place, race, ethnicity, gender, gender identity, sexuality, physical/mental/sensory dis/ability, class, national origin, religion, language, cultural heritage, age of individuals and ensembles, organizational size and structure, artistic form, and aesthetic orientation.

Diversity of grantees and their supported projects and activities is one of the NET/TEN program’s goals. To achieve this goal and support the equitable review of submitted applications, NET strives to select peer panels that reflect the widest diversity possible. Panels review applications and make funding recommendations independently to the NET staff in accordance with the program’s selection criteria and goals; all selection criteria (including the diversity of grantees and supported projects/activities) receive equal weight during the review process.
