Don’t Just Stand There – Do Something: Addressing DEI
Friday 5/26, 2023 at 5:00 eastern time
Community Gathering on Zoom - register with the bright red reservation box to receive the Zoom link. These gatherings are a service for the theater community and are offered free for TRU members; we ask that non-members help keep us running by making a donation or joining as a member.
In the room: Miranda Gohh, founder of Theater Producers of Color, co-founding member of The Industry Standard Group, associate producer at Davenport Theatricals (A Beautiful Noise, Harmony) and Stairwell Productions (What the Constitution Means to Me), co-producer of KPOP and Here Lies Love; Rob Laqui, founding member of The Industry Standard Group, associate producer at No Guarantees, co-producer of Hadestown National Tour, A Strange Loop and Here Lies Love. Most of us recognize and acknowledge the need for greater diversity in our industry, at all levels. So what do we do about it? In 2020, our guests directly addressed the needs of the BIPOC theater community. Both TISG and TPOC can be seen as direct responses to the outcry of "We See You White American Theater," and years of frustration, putting into place initiatives to strengthen the collective voices of BIPOC theater professionals, and making commercial producing and investing more accessible.
