Equity, Diversity, Inclusion & Accessibility
A more just, open and democratic theater
At Signature, we are continually building toward a more just, open and democratic theatre to celebrate playwrights and welcome all to our artistic home. We believe our strength lies in the diversity of our resident playwrights’ voices and vision, and that diversity enriches theatrical experiences.
We exist within a framework where power is not evenly or fairly distributed, and access is unequal. We commit to work consistently to create a more equitable and inclusive environment across our organization for artists, staff and audiences from historically underrepresented communities, including but not limited to people who identify as Black or African American, Indigenous, Latinx or Hispanic, Asian or Pacific Islander and all people of color, women, LGBTQ+, immigrants and people with disabilities. Signature is not exempt from upholding the pervasive systemic oppression in our industry and country, and we are continually striving and learning how to be a more anti-racist, anti-oppressive theatre.
We have developed ongoing Action Steps to hold ourselves accountable for taking actionable, measurable steps.
