2011 – Mo`olelo Performing Arts Co. and Zina Bethune

The affirmative action committees of American Federation of Television and Radio Artists, Screen Actors Guild and Actors' Equity Association held the 9th Annual Ivy Bethune Tri-Union Diversity Awards on November 7, 2011. The Tri-Union Diversity Awards celebrate individuals and organizations in the performing arts that have taken an active stand to make a difference toward a more representational, multicultural community by helping to build a foundation for diversity within the industry.

Equity’s honoree was the Mo`olelo Performing Arts Co, a nationally recognized, community-focused, socially conscious theater company. The Tri-Union honoree was Zina Bethune, founder of BethuneDanse, the first professional dance theatre in America to create a participatory program for persons with disabilities.
