Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Belonging at The Theatre
Learn about our commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging at The Hanover Theatre.
A Letter From Our President & CEO
The arts bring out the best in us. Theatre sparks conversation and creates social change by creating opportunities to gain new understanding and greater empathy. We take seriously our responsibility and role as a cultural gathering place, and know that, for us to play that role effectively, our organization must reflect the community around us. We also know we can do better in many ways, ways that we may not even realize yet, but we are committed to listening and incorporating diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging into every aspect of our operation.
We are committed to equity in all its forms, and we must reflect that commitment through both words and action. We must use this opportunity to ensure that all people have a voice and a place in our organization. We are made stronger by embracing a full and diverse range of unique and valuable perspectives, and by hearing and amplifying all voices we can do our part to make our world a better place.
Troy Siebels, President & CEO
OUR COMMITMENT TO DIVERSITY, EQUITY, INCLUSION AND BELONGING (DEIB)
Diversity and equity belong both onstage and off. The Hanover Theatre and Conservatory for the Performing Arts is not only for the community, it’s by the community we serve: so our performances and what’s happening backstage should reflect it as well. From donating tickets to our sensory-friendly performances, The Hanover Theatre Repertory to our educational programs, we’re committed to increasing accessibility to our theatre in every sense of the word. Everyone, no matter their age, ability or income, deserves to benefit from the power of the performing arts.
