The Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Committee serves to bring awareness to our voice community to help, support and encourage practices that reflect equity, diversity and inclusion.

VASTA serves a diverse constituency of theater professionals, academics, and voice professionals. As national demographics reflect the rich cultural, ethnic, and racial diversity of our planet, VASTA recognizes that it begins its 21st year as an organization predominantly comprised of Caucasian members with educational and artistic methods derived primarily from Eurocentric, specifically Anglo-American, forms, traditions, and texts.
