About the company
RLT is a welcoming community using theatre to enrich, educate, entertain and engage volunteers, students and audiences of all ages. RLT values everyone’s story. As an organization, we intentionally create a welcoming environment through a long-term, holistic approach to inclusion and diversity. We commit ourselves to actively seeking out perspectives that are not our own, encouraging learning, growth, and cultural awareness, engaging community conversations, and embracing conflict as a force for change.
RLT provides equal employment opportunities (EEO) to all employees and applicants for employment. We strive to be an equitable, diverse, antiracist, and inclusive organization that is accessible to all and to maintain an organizational culture that values a diverse staff, Board, and volunteer community, thus we seek a broad spectrum of employees. We strongly encourage and welcome candidates who identify as Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC), LGBTQ+, gender non-conforming and non-binary, neuro-diverse, and people with disabilities to apply. This position will remain open until filled and until a diverse and qualified pool of candidates is identified.
