In times of unrest and uncertainty, music is often created and performed to provide support, strength, and calm understanding, among all peoples. The President and Board of Directors of the International Conductors Guild work fervently to provide opportunities and educational experiences for conductors of all genres, ages,
experiences, nationalities, genders, religions, and races. 
  
As part of our ongoing work, we have recently created our organization’s first Diversity and Inclusion Committee which will be tasked with ensuring the International Conductors Guild does not condone any form of prejudice on any level, and we encourage our vast membership to support us in this incredibly important work.
Together, we will identify and correct any areas that may appear prejudiced, and we will continually learn how to confront and eradicate all levels of non-inclusion and discrimination. 
 
We have always felt that inclusion is an inherent characteristic of the International Conductors Guild’s global membership.  We are a diverse community, a broad collective, an equitable group, - a guild.
We support each other, and each other’s musical journey. 
And, we serve as advocates for all conductors throughout the world, with prejudice toward none. 

 

Our mission statement:

“The International Conductors Guild is dedicated to encouraging and promoting 
the highest standards in the art and profession of conducting.”
