Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
Diversity is the presence of differences within a given setting. Equity is the process of ensuring that processes and programs are impartial, fair and provide equal possible outcomes for every individual. Inclusion is the practice of ensuring that people feel a sense of belonging in the workplace.
How can we uphold our mission to "inspire empathy by telling the stories of our shared human experience" if we don't have strong diversity on the GTC team, and on the GTC stages? We at GTC are eager to set the course for Equity, Diversity and Inclusion as we grow into a professional theatre company.
Our DEI Statement
GTC is committed to Diversity, Equity & Inclusion across all functions in our organization.
In casting, GTC uses an open minded, color and culturally conscious approach to casting and encourages performers of all ethnicities, gender identities, and ages, as well as performers with disabilities, to submit.
As fundraising continues, GTC is excited to add new team members to its organization. A team that is made up of diversity of thought, perspective, age, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, ability and disability, will only strengthen our mission.
We are determined to create a place where artists, audiences, and colleagues feel safe, supported, respected, and valued. To that end, GTC is developing a DEI policy. We intend for all artists who enter our doors to feel safe and ready to explore challenging and compelling work. We intend for all audiences who enter our doors to be able to enjoy the unique magic of theatre; to be challenged and moved because they stepped into someone else's shoes for a brief moment in time.
Empathy is our North Star.
