Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion has always been a priority, but we have been slow in
fully realizing it in our Company. The current environment is providing us the space and
time to focus on this work. We have some recent success with an increase in Ensemble
diversity but can do more. While we weren’t the first theatre company to engage in this
work, we want to be at the front.
