Such a meaningful, content-rich, insightful, challenging, and encouraging webinar. I'm feeling refreshed, humbled, and empowered to broaden and deepen and diversify our course content.

Our webinar on Inclusivity and Theatre proved to be one of our most popular online events yet! Produced with the Association for Theatre in Higher Education and the Black Theatre Network, the invaluable session unpacked some key issues such as inclusive acting methods, diversifying the curriculum, design through a racial lens, and inclusive research methods for theatre practice.

Our fantastic panel of experts included Professor Sandra Adell (Literature Professor in the Department of Afro-American Studies, University of Wisconsin-Madison), lighting designer and scholar Kathy Perkins (Professor Emerita at University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign), and Professor Sharrell D. Luckett (Director of the Black Acting Methods Studio and Associate Professor of Performance Studies at University of Cincinnati).
