Sandra Oh addressing the artistic directors present in her speech:

“…to you in power, to see this not as a burden, but to open and examine the limited thinking we have right now, and grow past it....I understand the reactiveness to [protect] the purity of artistic freedom, but there is room [for diversity]. We are asking the artistic directors to be our advocates, because you are in the room [making decisions].”
