The Criterion Theatre is committed to a core aspiration to be a demonstrable place of opportunity for all with diverse and brilliant plays on stage and inclusive company and membership.
As a response to the recent demand for change, born of George Floyd’s murder in 2020 and the wider Black Lives Matter movement, we have worked to develop a clear Anti-Racism Reflective Statement that sets out our position and is not only a provocation to ourselves, but also a set of aspirations and a call to action to make real change and progress on equality, diversity and inclusion within our theatre.
Accompanying this, we have updated our Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Policy Statement. This proudly states our position, what we currently do, and what we plan to do to make improvements in the future around EDI issues within our aspirational EDI Action Plan 2020-25.
Each year at the Company AGM, we report back on progress which can be accessed below:
