DIVERSITY & INCLUSION

Urbanite Theatre strongly believes that an effective workforce includes employees from different and diverse backgrounds and experiences that together form a more creative, innovative, and productive environment.


Urbanite Theatre recognizes that building an equitable, diverse and inclusive environment is the key ingredient to its relevance and sustainability in the community. Urbanite Theatre respects diversity within human qualities and these qualities include but are not limited to: ethnicity, race, color, and country of origin, sex, gender, age, sexual orientation, marital status, religion, beliefs, political affiliations, socioeconomic status, experiences and any form of disability.


Urbanite Theatre strives to create a culture of inclusion where employees of diverse human qualities can thrive and succeed and are able to participate in, and contribute to, the progress and success of the theatre, while growing both professionally and personally.

Discrimination of any kind will not be tolerated in Urbanite Theatre, and any reported instances will be grounds for immediate refusal of service.

URBANITE THEATRE'S STATEMENT ON GEORGE FLOYD AND BLACK LIVES MATTER

At Urbanite Theatre, we believe in radical acceptance, relentless inclusion, and the unwavering support of vulnerable communities.

 

Our institution would not be complete without the stories that emerge from the Black community, or the Black artists that help make them.

 

We recognize the anger, grief, and outrage that so many are feeling. And we're deeply saddened to see so many suffer. Through our work, we will continue to shine light on the stories that help us connect, evolve and love.
