The following Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) statement has been adapted from FSU’s EDI Statement:

At Opening Nights at Florida State University, we recognize that every competitive advantage begins with people. By valuing, celebrating and leveraging the differences and similarities of our students and staff, we inspire an environment of innovation and passion—one that enables us to create cultural experiences that better reflect the needs of our students, staff, customers, constituents, communities and other key stakeholders. Our approach starts with a belief that diversity is about more than a particular head count: it must reflect the quality and depths of interactions. We will remain focused on doing all that we can to ensure Opening Nights is presenting artists that reflect the diversity of the university and greater Tallahassee community.
