The Huntington's Equity & Anti-Racism Update

November 2023 Update:

The 2022-2023 season was a time of transition for The Huntington. We welcomed our new Artistic Director, said farewell to our  Managing Director, reopened our beautifully renovated space on Huntington Avenue, and re-learned what it meant to be operating at pre-pandemic levels of activity on our campus.

With all of these adjustments we have learned more about ourselves as an organization and how we can best serve our community – whether it’s staff, artists, students, or audience members. We have continued to utilize our ASAP (Anti-Racist Strategic Action Plan) to guide our work as we fine-tuned our processes, centering the principles of equity, diversity, inclusion, access, and anti-racism in every corner of our operations. We have found many successes this year.

However, we have also faced challenges. We have included a summary of our recent work below and look forward to sharing further updates on an annual basis. As always, we welcome your feedback or input to the HEAR task force at or directly to the chair of HEAR at

Past progress updates, including the full original ASAP, can be found below.
