We believe that our vision statement, “A Better World for Theatre, a Better World Because of Theatre,” starts with our staff and board.
Therefore, we commit to the following Core Values:
TCG is committed to supporting the plurality of aesthetic, perspective, race/ethnicity, class, gender, sexual orientation, disability, age, mission, as well as organizational size and structure. We’re working to transform the national theatre field into a more equitable, inclusive and diverse community.
What We Do
TCG's strategic plan includes a multi-year Equity, Diversity & Inclusion Initiative (EDII) to transform the national theatre field into a more equitable, inclusive and diverse community. Current external programs include the EDI Institute, Legacy Leaders of Color Video Project, and support for Coalition Building. TCG Staff and Board members also engage in internal EDI work.
TCG’s Department of EDI Initiatives supports TCG’s internal efforts towards TCG’s core values around equity, diversity & inclusion through collaborative work with TCG’s Executive Office on TCG policies, affinity groups, workgroup, staff trainings and onboarding, and externally through programs such as the EDI Institute, the Legacy Leaders of Color Video Project, and Coalition Building through initiatives such as Beyond Orientalism, EDI-focused sessions during the Fall Forum & National Conference, and engagement with Theatres of Color and Rising Leaders of Color.
