Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
“A place for lots of music – no, lots of everything! And for everybody!”
– Sally Ordway Irvine
The Ordway’s mission is to be a community magnet that attracts artists and audiences, creating unforgettable shared experiences.
Since Sally’s founding vision our community has grown and evolved, and so too has the Ordway’s concept of what a Performing Arts Center can, and should, do to ensure equal access, representation, and participation in both our programs and our decision-making processes.
To that end, the Ordway’s goal is to reflect the communities we serve on our stages, in our audiences, and in our breakrooms and boardrooms. Our vision: Every community engaged. Every story told.
