Director of Equity, Diversity, Inclusion & Access (EDIA)

We believe that theatre matters. Our commitment is to make it matter to more people.

For eight decades, The Old Globe has been a community asset to San Diego. Founded in 1935 when a small corps of performers presented short versions of Shakespeare’s plays during the California Pacific International Exposition, the company soon became an independent community theatre producing a varied repertoire. Today, The Old Globe is San Diego’s flagship arts institution and one of the largest regionaltheatres in the United States. Producing a wide range of material including the finest American plays in both world premiere productions and revivals; classics, especially the works of William Shakespeare; and musicals, many of which have gone on to subsequent success on Broadway and beyond, stage productions are only a part of the Old Globe’s work, all of which advances their belief that theatre delivers a public good to the community.

The mission of The Old Globe is to preserve, strengthen, and advance American theatre by creating theatrical experiences of the highest professional standards; producing and presenting works of exceptional merit, designed to reach current and future audiences; ensuring diversity and balance in programming, and by providing an environment for the growth and education of theatre professionals, audiences, and the community at large. With such a unique history and compelling brand recognized nationwide and internationally, this is an auspicious time for our organization. It is in this context that The Old Globe is excited to welcome nominations and applications for our inaugural Director of Equity, Diversity, Inclusion & Access (EDIA).

Reporting directly to The Old Globe’s co-CEOs, the Director of EDIA will be a member of the senior leadership team and will provide primary and coordinating leadership across the organization for all aspects regarding EDIA at the theatre. The Director of EDIA will have responsibility for guiding The Old Globe’s efforts to conceptualize, define, assess, nurture, and cultivate EDIA as an institutional resource to leverage the theatre’s organizational excellence, by leading the execution of, and reporting on, progress towards the goals articulated in The Old Globe’s Social Justice Roadmap, which was developed in 2020 in collaboration with members of The Old Globe’s community and which serves as a commitment to a path of action that will guide The Old Globe to a more equitable and antiracist future.

The Director of EDIA will excel in all aspects of change management as The Old Globe seeks to intentionally move the culture of the theatre forward. Key areas of responsibility include the ability to collect and analyze relevant EDIA data as well as compose and deliver reports on the organization’s EDIA efforts to their staff, board, and external audiences. The successful candidate will serve as a liaison and resource to staff-level EDIA working groups and committees; the board-level EDIA committee; and serve as a communicator of the organization’s EDIA efforts to the broader San Diego community. The Director of EDIA will partner with various departments in the organization to strategize and execute EDIA efforts throughout their operations. Lastly, the Director of EDIA will partner with the Human Resources department to provide support for employee-related policies, practices, concerns, and communications relating to EDIA.

With respect to qualifications, we recognize that interested applicants will come with a range of experiences and education. That said, candidates who have been strong EDIA advocates and who understand the connections between lived experience and creating a common vision of EDIA across an organization will be most likely to realize success in this role. They will bring sophisticated relational abilities as well as anunderstanding of the norms and culture specific to artistic organizations. Finally, the successful candidate will be results-oriented and committed to encouraging a change agenda aimed toward the desired results.

How to Apply

We consider EDIA to be foundational to our institutional success and strongly encourage applications from populations underrepresented in the theatre field (including multilingual candidates) to apply.

To ensure plurality in its candidate pool, including attracting greater representation from Black, Indigenous, and communities of color, the organization is partnering with BIPOC Executive Search.Interested applicants can send their resume to Candice Frederick or Urmilla Khan at cfrederick@bipocsearch.com.

The salary for the role of Director of EDIA is approximately $120K US, along with benefits, including vacation, health and company paid retirement contributions.

We recognize a heightened duty to protect employees from health and safety risks during the current pandemic. As such, an offer of employment shall be conditional upon proof of full COVID-19 vaccination with a vaccine series approved by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention or the World Health Organization, unless a medical or religious exemption applies.

We thank everyone for their expression of interest—and are truly appreciative of the time individuals put into applying—but with the limitations of time only those selected for an interview will be contacted.
