A word on SitW's creative culture:

Safety (noun) : freedom from harm or danger : the state of being safe


Shakespeare in the Woods is committed to creating and maintaining a safe work environment, and as such holds a zero tolerance policy against racism, sexism, transphobia, antisemitism, ableism, xenophobia, homophobia, islamophobia, fatphobia, ageism, and physical intimidation or harm of any form.

 

In the event that a transgression occurs during a production, SitW reserves the right to immediately remove the offender(s) from employment, regardless of position/power dynamic.

 

If the individual(s) who were subject to the transgression feel strongly that they would like to attempt accountability and restoration versus immediate removal of the offender(s), SitW will facilitate the opportunity for resolution, if possible.  The outcome/decision will ultimately rest with the individual(s) subject to transgression and if they feel genuine accountability and resolution has occurred. 

When in SitW's employment, you are entering into the mutual agreement of creating and maintaining a safe work environment for yourself and your fellow artists.  You are committed to upholding a zero tolerance for any and all forms of prejudice, bigotry, hate, and bias, and understand that if you engage in any such behavior, you are subject to immediate unemployment.

 

It is not enough to state the desire for a safe and welcoming work environment, accountability is required.  We each must commit to creating a communal space that welcomes the uncompromising fullness of all individuals and their artistry, and be willing to hold ourselves to a standard that enables trust and vulnerability with one another.
