DIRECTOR OF ANTI-RACISM, EQUITY, DIVERSITY, AND INCLUSION (AREDI)

The ability to gather and engage with perspectives other than our own is a privilege that we consider sacred. It is important that we acknowledge both the Indigenous land we occupy and the hands that built the country and city we call home.  

We acknowledge that the Tongva (TONG-VAGH) native people are the Indigenous caretakers of the stolen land upon which our theatres stand, and that the United States was built at the expense of forcefully enslaved Black people.  

Center Theatre Group is producing and amplifying more voices from Black artists, Indigenous artists, and other artists of color (BIPOC). We offer these acknowledgements with the intention to spark awareness and a desire to learn more about the history of the land we now call Los Angeles.

 

THE ROLE

Center Theatre Group (CTG) in Los Angeles, CA, seeks a leader to join a team of talented staff, artists, and board members in the role of Director of Anti-Racism, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion.

 

ABOUT CENTER THEATRE GROUP

CTG’s Mission:

To serve the diverse audiences of Los Angeles by producing and presenting theatre of the highest caliber, by nurturing new artists, by attracting new audiences, and by developing youth outreach and arts education programs. This mission is based on a belief that the art of theatre is a cultural force with the capacity to transform the lives of individuals and society at large.

 

Who is Center Theatre Group?

CTG was founded in 1967 with the opening of the Ahmanson Theatre under the leadership of Founding Artistic Director Gordon Davidson, followed by the 16-year tenure of Artistic Director Michael Ritchie from 2005-2021. CTG has staged a wide variety of dramas, musicals, comedies, classics, and World premieres and has played host to a veritable cast of industry greats. Today, under the leadership of Managing Director/CEO Meghan Pressman, CTG’s core function is to produce and present a broad range of bold and engaging theatre for the public and support the theatrical community.

During the pandemic pause in operations, CTG responded to the industry’s call to address systemic inequities toward BIPOC communities by beginning a process of regular assessment, education, training, and change. CTG’s Commitments to Change were first posted in June 2020 and were followed by the formation of a permanent Anti-Racism, Equity, Diversity, Inclusion, and Access (AREDI) committee by the board of directors, as well as ongoing communication regarding progress toward the goals.

Over the past year, CTG board and staff have completed a comprehensive Strategic Alignment Process that included outreach to over 800 artists, audiences, donors, and other stakeholders. It ensured that individuals were engaged in CTG’s future, and that everyone in the organization has an understanding of the purpose of the company and how the envisioned future will be achieved. The result of this work was a new articulation of CTG’s Company Values:

  • Artistic Ambition – We create and present a broad range of outstanding live theatrical work that is bold, authentic, provocative, engaging, entertaining, and inspiring. We support artists working at the highest levels of their own experience and craft.
  • Artistic Identity, Risk-Taking, and Innovation – The theatrical creative process is the center of our work. We collaborate with diverse, creative, and innovative artists, risk-takers, and boundary-breakers to bring great stories to life and create theatre magic.
  • Centering Los Angeles – We are a civic institution anchored in the cultural vibrancy and rich diversity of Los Angeles, committing to represent the communities that make up our great city, country, and world by bringing theatre to our stages for Los Angeles audiences.
  • Lifelong Learning, Inspiration, and Human Connection – We nurture a lifelong passion for theatre in our current and future generations. We center human connection through collaboration, inclusion, imagination, united in the power of storytelling.
  • Respect, Compassion, Social Conscience, and AREDI – Guided by our social responsibility, we lead with respect and compassion. We create opportunities, cultivate relationships, and dismantle barriers using an anti-racist frame that strives to include marginalized, underrepresented, and excluded communities.
