As a professional company and community we recognise our responsibility not only to learn and grow, but also to contribute artistic work and education programmes that illuminate and challenge the many ways in which conscious and unconscious bias, racism and oppression operate, and proactively work towards their eradication.
The proposed eradication will extend throughout the company, with particular attention to our culture, values, processes of recruitment, appointment, mentoring, succession planning, and support of and engagement with people.
We will try our best to diversify our pool of freelance professionals and mentees with particular attention to ethnic minorities, asian and black representation.

We will identify necessary actions to make positive change towards creating an anti-racist, gender-varied, pro-equality industry.

These organisational commitments are of profound significance and we are committed to advocating and promoting change in our industry.
