MISSION, VISION, AND VALUES:
Dallas Theater Center will engage, entertain, and inspire our diverse community by creating experiences that stimulate new ways of thinking and living. We will do this by consistently producing plays, educational programs, and other initiatives that are of the highest quality and reach the broadest possible constituency.
Dallas Theater Center 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. As a leading national theater, DTC recognizes that building an equitable, diverse and inclusive environment is the key ingredient to its relevance and sustainability in the community it serves.
DIVERSITY is acknowledging and respecting human qualities that are different from our own and outside the groups we are a part of or associated with, yet are present in other individuals and groups. These qualities include but are not limited to: ethnicity, race, color, country of origin, sex, gender, age, sexual orientation, marital status, religion, beliefs, political affiliations, socioeconomic status, experiences and any form of disability.
An INCLUSIVE work environment is one where all employees are engaged and supported by the leadership of the institution, beginning at the highest level. Dallas Theater Center 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 institution, while growing both professionally and personally.
