Green Thumb Theatre Racial Equity Survey
Like many organizations the world over, Green Thumb is examining how it can disrupt white supremacist systems of oppression, and has engaged Cambium Arts & Education to work with us on a plan to move forward racial equity within our organization. This includes training with both Green Thumb's staff and Board of Directors.
As a company with strong social justice values, we feel this is an important step to take to make sure that the way we work reflects the ideals of the work we produce. We have previously worked with Cambium's Director and Founder Amal Rana on a project basis and look forward to investigating and challenging our work on an organizational level.
This work will be informed by the following survey on racial equity, circulated to past Green Thumb artists, staff, and contractors where you may anonymously share any experiences or thoughts you feel Green Thumb should know about as we move forward with organizational racial equity work.
Survey Information and Link:
All survey results are confidential and will go directly to Amal Rana. Amal will share a summary report of findings with Green Thumb leadership.
While we are sending the survey directly to people we have worked with in the past in any capacity, it is open to the public. We encourage you to complete this anonymous survey and voice your experiences.
