Shubert Advocacy Series

The Shubert Organization recognizes that in order to make a real difference in our industry, we need to actively listen to the people asking for change so that we can in fact change for the better. The Shubert Advocacy Series aims to give a platform to organizations who will provide compelling and engaging conversations, so that their voices, missions and experiences can be heard.

The Shubert Organization believes that the stories and viewpoints offered by the speakers here are critically important to building an equitable and inclusive community for all. While the perspectives and points of view are varied in nature, Shubert does not intend to endorse any particular viewpoints or statements made by the speakers, but rather supports the dialogue and the need for a forum in which these important issues are discussed.
