Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
CVRep recognizes that our programming, staff, performing artists, Board of Directors, and audiences must reflect the rich diversity of the communities we serve. We acknowledge the moral prerogativeto tackle barriers for women and people of color and uncover where greater equity and inclusion will be most impactful. CVRep is committed to implementing programs, outreach and hiringpractices immediately and transparently, that will allow us to achieve these goals. Our New Works Program, ORIGINS, is one of the first steps we will be taking towards these goals, engaging these practices in all departments of production. Our Board and Leadership has recommended actions that will lead to greater diversity, equity, and inclusion among our staff, creative teams, performing artists, and audience. We plan to be updating on the progress of our work on this space. CVRep has evolved with areputation as a leader in our industry here in the Valley and while we’ve produced work that has moved our community towards greater inclusion-we believe we can still work to create the safe and inclusive environment we envision. As we build a future upon our past, it is vital that equity, diversity, inclusion and justice for all be essential to our guiding principles. We do so, moving forward with commitment and inspiration.
