Project Theatre is committed to promoting equal

opportunities and valuing the benefits of diversity and

social inclusion in everything we do.

Equality

& Diversity

 

Our challenge is to promote an environment within which we can utilise the widest range of knowledge, skills and experience as well as ensuring compliance with the relevant legislation and codes of practice.

 

We believe that a diverse staff and member team adds value to any organisation and for our organisation; we genuinely believe that this makes it a place where people want to work and learn.

 

 

A message from our Founder -

 

Project Theatre has always been different. A different kind of company with a different view of the world. It’s a special place where we have the opportunity to create the best productions and projects possible — projects that change lives and help shape the future. It’s a privilege we hold dear.

 

Diversity is critical to innovation and it is essential to Project Theatre’s future. We aspire to do more than just make our company as diverse as the talent available. We must address the broad underlying challenges, offer new opportunities, and create a future generation of performance makers as diverse as the world around us. We also aspire to make a difference beyond Project Theatre.

 

This means fostering diversity not just at Project Theatre but throughout our entire community, from the audience we welcome to our shows to the staff and volunteers we work with. We are committed to advancing inclusion and diversity across Project Theatre and the communities we’re a part of.

 

We want every person who joins our team, every audience visiting our shows or parents calling for support and information to feel welcome. We believe in equality for everyone, regardless of race, age, gender, gender identity, ethnicity, religion, or sexual orientation.

That applies throughout our company with no exceptions.

 

We’re working hard to expand our recruiting efforts so we continue to work with talented people from groups that are currently underrepresented in our sector and community. We’re supporting education with programs like the Youth Scotland / ASDAN Youth Achievement Awards, Saltire Awards and Arts Awards coming soon to help students currently at school and about to leave to move into further or higher education, training or employment.

 

We are proud of the progress we’ve made, and our commitment to diversity is unwavering.

But we know there is a lot more work to be done.
