Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Anti Racism
We are accountable to our complete community. We recognize that there are populations we have served well, have historically underserved, and have yet to serve. We aim to foster an environment where people of every race, ethnicity, faith, sexual orientation, gender identity, income, ability, and nationality, both internal and external to our organization, are welcome and empowered.
The pervasive nature of racism reveals itself in myriad ways and throughout most established systems in the United States, and the theatre industry is not immune. Village Theatre is starting an intentional journey from behaving as a non-racist organization—one that believes in equality and views itself as open-minded and non-discriminatory—to an anti-racist organization—one that takes action against inequity and to dismantle structural and institutional racism.
