Your consideration to share your expertise and experience by participating on our organization’s diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) committee is appreciated. As a committee member, you may look forward to the rich and challenging experience to strengthen the character, livability, and diversity of our workplace. Through the involvement, service, and fair approach of its members, the committee will shape our approach to DEI, and have a significant role in the development of strategies and best practices.
Ideally, the DEI committee will be made up of individuals from all areas of the playhouse: Board members, Advisory Board Members, artists, executive team, and full-time and part-time staff from all departments. It is the role of the DEI committee to provide an advisory role from a diverse perspective, integrate initiatives to inspire and direct diversity and inclusion, and create processes that will ensure accountability on diversity and inclusion moving forward. The primary role of the DEI committee is to examine the culture at the playhouse and when necessary, make recommendations on changes, standards, and other items pertinent to the DEI commitment. An ideal committee member must have a willingness and dedication to commit both time and energy to the DEI committee; have an interest in the diversity, equity and inclusion of our organization and its staff. Ultimately, the goal of this committee is to foster the betterment of our organization’s culture so that everyone is provided with a holistic, professional, and inclusive experience. Below are the types of efforts and tasks that you may expect to participate in, or review, as a DEI committee member:
